Share

Maame Ekua Manful of Ghana, an academic research student from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, combined her passion for cooking and science into an entrepreneurial venture. Her budding start-up Sweetpot Yoghurt produces a sweet potato-flavored, fortified yogurt that addresses the issue of vitamin A deficiency syndrome, a problem prevalent in developing countries in Africa.

Maame is one of five winners of the inaugural Johnson & Johnson Champions of Science®—Africa Storytelling Challenge, which highlighted the journeys of scientists and innovators working in Africa and celebrated the profound difference their work is making in communities throughout the continent and around the world.

Champions of Science is a multifaceted initiative to convene and catalyze champions of science, and engage people of all generations and backgrounds to see the unlimited opportunities that science brings.
