My First and Best Heroine!


My First heroine is surely my best of all times. To find out more, we will have to read to the end. She will most probably be the only woman in these series of mine, to have a a twin picture  profile  which depict her flow both in the office and at home.  Read on, be inspired and leave a comment …

“When you fall, seek from within yourself how you could have prevented it. You will find a clue on how next to jump higher without falling” Bibiana MBUH TAKU

 

My Mother My Model                        Mum and brother                                     

 

Mrs. Mbuh Taku is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Diversity Management & Consulting ltd which provides business advisory services to Businesses, the public sector and NGOs. She champions the causes of women, especially “grass root women” in the fight against poverty, encourages the insertion of young people into business especially entrepreneurship and is a convinced supporter of networking. She has a passion for women’s capacity building, young people and civil society organizations and is currently one of IFC’s Business Edge certified trainers and Master trainer.

She has worked extensively in the Republic of Cameroon: in the Civil Service as Treasury accountant having served in various positions of responsibility, over 16 years of service in the Crude Oil Exploration and Production in PECTEN CAMEROON company finance department with strong inter- faces with the technical departments, Plan International as Operations Support Manager and Assistant Underwriter for American Life Insurance Cameroon respectively.

Like her mother who was a community leader, Bibiana is a development crusader and is one of the founding members and the National Coordinator of Helen Atabong Asaba’s Foundation that has carried out several development activities including the fight against HIV/AIDS in Lebialem, studies on “Bondage of women” in Wabane Sub-Division, and several other studies and works in Taxation, Law and the Environment. She has attended and facilitated at several training workshops and events and has travelled extensively in Africa, Europe and the U.S.A.

Bibiana is a member of several networks including the; Groupement de Femmes d’Affaires du Cameroon (GFAC).

She holds several university certificates including Diplome d’Ecole Superieure de Commerce (DESC) with a major in Management, Finance and Accountancy, Master in Public Administration with a major in Treasury Management, CIMA’s bachelor in Business Accounting, UNITAR’s certificate in effective public debt management. She is perfectly bilingual in French and English. She loves advocacy, counselling, reading, gardening and travelling. Born in Lebialem Division, Republic of Cameroon, on 19th December 1959, she is the mother of 4 biological children and the natural mother to many children.

Now all the above said, this dynamic and graceful woman happens by Divine Grace to be My Mother – My First Model. I am the second of her children and our love affair is 34 solid years old. It will surely be the subject of several other posts but suffice it to state here that such a woman is an inspiration to many and definitely a role model!

I learnt the meaning of unconditional love from her and same with the meaning of sacrifice. I learnt to be a strong and dynamic woman and above all, I learnt that accomplishment was intrinsically linked to how many others you inspired or helped along the journey…

 

 

 

 

“Equality in the boardroom – Introducing quotas for women in the workplace”


I often wonder how equal women and men would ever become? Maybe this equality depends of the angle from which we approach a given subject?

Today I share with you this update by the European Parliament with regards to achieving equality in the boardroom although it may (jokingly) take a long long time for this to be achieved or implemented. This is however to me a good step in the right direction!

Read on and leave a comment…

Equality in the Boardroom

In an ideal world gender equality in business would be a given, but in reality corporate boards are still dominated by men. To ensure more equal access to the top of the corporate ladder, the European Parliament voted for binding rules requiring that at least 40% of non-executive boards members at EU-listed companies are women.

Introducing My Garden


Marie's Garden 

We all love roses right?

Do we all love the thorns or the delicate and difficult nature of tending a garden of roses? Maybe, maybe not. One thing I know for sure is that I decided to turn my life into a garden of roses.

Hm, I have got lots of them but all have thorns. They smell so good at the end but most often the stench of the manure that bred them was unbearable even to me!

So I also thought of opening up my garden to the public and already have a few visitors. Some just stroll by to smell and maybe smear, others to pluck off one or two (they are free) and others still to help me in one way or the other in my gardening.

I will equally and in total appreciation of their works, expose the flowers of my guests but this will be strictly on special occasions and some may need to be called Rose, thinking of my Ashley Rose!

I open my garden officially on Friday the 22nd with a single rose (the weather is uncooperative hugh) and I hope you remember to leave a comment and of course be inspired!

Please, do us all a favour by reading this post which is an addendum to my Introduction: http://marieabanga.com/2014/09/07/a-befitting-disclaimer-for-a-sunday/

Is this so hard to understand?

My Inspiration for today


Inspiration for 131120

We all are certainly aware of this and yet we go on worrying!

So when I came across this gallery that captivates the fact as well as graphics do, I could not help but share this.

I had decided long ago to minimize my worrying and yes I must admit it is hard to stop worrying at all for we sure do agree we often need a rocking chair to sothe us while we cry thanks to sprains of life.

The lesson for me is, if you sure want to get somewhere, and who wouldn’t? You have to do something about that worrying or,  what do you think …

Women’s land rights are human rights, says new UN report


One of my first posts in my blog was on this very delicate topic:

I deem it delicate because we all know that especially in Africa and some third world countries, women were themselves treated like property

So how does property own property?

Well, the status-quo is changing and now there are policies and publications : http://bit.ly/1aSSQoI   which hitherto were unavailable and this to me is a great push. I always boast of the fact that my own Grandma was the first woman in her village to inherit property and this includes land from her own father. she was even the one to ‘succeed him’ a thing unheard of back then!

There may still be much more to do for Women’s land rights to be fully implemented and upheld as such, but the future isn’t bleak no more and I think we can all agree to that…
