“The woman who sought the presidency of Cameroon in the face of death threats and a kidnapping was the guest speaker at a reception to benefit Vital Voices, an international non-governmental organization for women. The reception took place March 27 at Wally Findlay Galleries. James Borynack hosted the evening, which included cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a discussion with Kah Walla and Susan Davis.
Walla is a women’s activist in Cameroon, where she was a popular candidate for the presidency – so popular that she was kidnapped by four men who claimed to be police officers protecting her so she would not be at the National Day festivities to represent her political party. She is global ambassador for Vital Voices Global Partnership and is recognized internationally for her commitment to Africa, development, women and youth.
Davis, chairwoman of Susan Davis International, also is chairwoman of the board of Vital Voices Global Partnership.
Proceeds benefit Vital Voices, an international non-governmental organization that identifies and invests in women leaders throughout the world. Founded in 1997 by former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the organization’s network includes more than 14,000 leaders representing 144 countries who have trained and mentored 500,000 additional women and girls in their communities.”
