The Pan-African Women Inventors & Innovators Network (PAWIIN)
PAWIIN President: Madelein Mkunu, President, Leading Women of Africa

PAWIIN aims to recognise and promote the success stories of women across Africa that have come through the challenges of turning an idea into reality. PAWIIN was designed in response to an urgent need across Africa for the support and recognition of women’s enterprise, invention and innovation with maximum commitment and potential.

PAWIIN continues to be the first of its kind to put the spotlight on Africa’s most exceptionally creative, inventive and innovative women entrepreneurs and professionals while highlighting their immense contribution and potential to the social and economic growth of Africa.

Women Entrpreneurship, Infrastructure, Sustainable Energy Development (WEISED)

We are of the strong opinion that if women’s concerns and significant contribution to rebuilding Africa is to be taken seriously, we must work closely with various institutions and individuals in order to realize our vision for innovative women in sectors relating to the development of infrastructure in Africa. GlobalWIIN under its Pan-African Network has teamed up with Leading Women Of Africa (LWA) based in Cape Town for this very reason. WEISED involves partaking in the combined challenges and opportunities for transforming existing and future infrastructures while adopting a cleaner and more efficient consideration for the environment.

Under the Patronage of H.E. Rev Dr Gifty Lamptey, the Ambassador for women’s empowerment in Africa, the GWIIN Chairman, Mr Reginald Laryea and on behalf of the Global Women Inventors & Innovators Network (GWIIN) working in partnership with 40 Roses Foundation Ghana, GWESES was born. One of the main priorities of the United Nations is undoubtedly the equality and empowerment of women and young girls. Equal access to education, health care, decent work and representation in political and economic decision-making processes is high on our agenda. The GWESES 2018 acts as a catalyst and a vehicle to promote and develop initiatives that empower and encourage investment for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world with a specific focus on Africa. GWESES serves as a follow on from previous GWIIN initiatives which includes the first of our remarkable events held in Ghana in 2005 in partnership with GEM- International Finance Corporation, the private arm of the World Bank Group, Ministry of Women (MOWAC) and the Ministry of Trade & Industry, Ghana. Please find attached the 2005 GWIIN Report.

Teenage Girls Win The Pan African Women Inventors & Innovators (Pawiin) Overall Platinum Awards For Their Non-Toxic Renewable Electric Energy Generator

Olajumoke Adebayo & Eniola AdewaleTwo teenage Girls from Doregos Private Academy, Lagos, Nigeria walked away with the prestigious title of the overall Platinum PAWIIN winners 2010 at the PAWIIN Awards which took place on the 3rd November 2010 at the ECOWAS Commission Abuja, Nigeria.

PAWIIN 2010 Platinum Overall Winners – Olajumoke Adebayo & Eniola Adewale receiving their Award from Nigeria’s Minister for Women Affairs & Social Development Hon Iyom Josephine Anenih

They entered their invention under the Best Innovative School & College Project Award Category with little expectation of actually winning the overall award. The judging panel were impressed with their invention which seeks to solve the problem of power supply in the country Nigeria and other countries having power challenges through the provision of cheap, clean and renewable electrical energy.

They based their invention which was part of a school project on the principles of Flemning Left Hand Rule. The generator does not use fuel and it is cheap to operate and does not emit any toxic waste products or noise as with other conventional energy sources. At the exhibition, they took their time to explain how their invention works. They explained that the power forthe initial take off is supplied by two 12V batteries arranged in the series, two opto-couplars alternatelypositioned on the serrated edge of the shaft which does the switching on/off of the generator.

The rotation of the shaft consists of eight neodymium magnets causing a magnetic field cutting through the four field coils and four armature coils, each consisting of 250 turns of 22 standard wire gauge (s.w.g.), energizing those coils and causing a rotation. The intermittent but continuous switching on/off from the opto-couplars causes a collapsing of the magnetic field around the coils thereby inducing voltage into the coil. This induced electromotive force is higher than the input power. The battery can be disconnected at this point. The current is smoothened by a set of capacitors which also help to serve as a form of backup. This makes power generation perpetual until it is switched off.
