Episode 134: Toward Unity of Purpose with Daisry Mathias

Greetings Glocal Citizens!
This week on the podcast you're in for a real treat. We're journeying to Namibia in Southern Africa by way of Morocco in North Africa where my guest and I recently met. As a Namibian patriot, Daisry Mathias was appointed Advisor to the President of the Republic of Namibia, His Excellency Dr. Hage G. Geingob, in June 2015. In this role, she advises on policy and programme priorities to harness a Demographic Dividend and create an enabling environment for sustainable entrepreneurship in Namibia, under the overarching goals of poverty eradication, economic inclusion and shared prosperity. Daisry's professional experience ranges from public policy formulation, national development planning, programme monitoring and multi-stakeholder coordination. In her preceding role as an under 30 Chief Executive Officer of Team Namibia; she led a business support organisation promoting local industry by advocating the preferential consumption of Namibian goods and services. In 2019 she was selected as an Obama Leader, joining 200 young Africans in a Leadership Development Programme by former U.S. President Barack Obama.

Fully committed in her passion for public service, Daisry is also Founder & Director, Oyayone Foundation which works with and for under-resourced single mothers in Namibia to break the cycle of poverty by addressing basic needs and tackling asset poverty toward achieving social mobility. The Foundation is “Building an enduring inheritance for our children’s children” by facilitating the ownership and management of economic assets by more Namibian women.

Trust me when I say that this is a conversation that will inform, inspire and activate your spirit to connect with the Pan-African movements that are manifesting a new world!
