“We are deeply saddened to hear of the tragic passing of Efua Dorkenoo OBE. She was a true inspiration to all of us at IKWRO. She was brilliantly open minded and progressive and her work will continue to have a huge impact on thousands of women and girls. We will miss her greatly and it is a huge loss for us because she was someone with whom we felt we had a shared vision, who was powerfully motivating and supportive,” said Diana Nammi, IKWRO’s founder and director.
