Founder and Executive Director, Golden Baobab Prize – Ghana, Deborah Ahenkorah
“Golden Baobab is powering prosperity in Africa by igniting the beginnings of a children's content industry. So in inspiring Africa content creators to create stories that we can turn into all kinds of multimedia; into books, into audio books, animations, merchandise, we are essentially creating jobs across sectors and saying that we can tell our stories and we can make money telling our stories."

The organisation awards the Golden Baobab Prize to the most talented writers and illustrators of African stories. In an annual writing competition Deborah and her team inspire African writers to create stories for children and young adults. Golden Baobab also runs workshops and initiatives for writers and illustrators and connects them to publishers and multimedia producers and make sure they have all the resources writers and illustrators need to produce good stories.

The Prize program also has a literary agency which connects writers and illustrators to publishers and ensures that good stories are published.
