H. E. Dr. Ellen Sirleaf-Jonhson

President of Liberia

Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is the world's first elected black female president and Africa's first elected female head of states

President Sirleaf has, throughout her career, demonstrated passionate commitment to hard work, integrity and good governance, advocating for the rights of women and the importance of education to provide a better future for her country and its people.  She has revived national hope by strengthening the institutions of national security and good governance, leading the revitalization of the national economy and infrastructure, and restoring Liberia’s international reputation and credibility

It is important to remember that the so-called “New Africa” is made up of 54 countries in five regions. Africa is not a single monolithic whole. The only safe generalisation is that Africa is planning, managing and starting to finance its own destiny.
