Aminata Brown, Ghana, Africa. Winning Samaritan: Had a startling realization a decade ago when she met a young “kaya yo” in a Ghanian marketplace. As a management consultant working in West Africa, Brown understood how little financial assistance would be needed to completely transform the lives of an entire community of young women who routinely carried heavy loads from dawn to dusk for less than a dollar a day. In 2008, she took the step to form a nonprofit called SISTAWorks (Stay in School Tuition Assistance) that now supports secondary education for 83 Ghanian girls so that the girls might become entrepreneurs and leaders in their own communities. SISTAWorks now supports secondary education for 83 Ghanian girls. By Mary Rickard
