Betty Sieben (Founder of WAM)
The founder, Mrs Betty Sieben, is a Ghanaian married to a German and has two children. She was trained in Ghana to become a nurse and midwife and later worked as a nurse in Europe. She is a woman who has heart for people, and cannot stand to see people being maltreated, especially women.
Being in Europe for some time now, she has seen and heard sorrowful stories of how so many men have maltreated and abused their spouses with impunity. This abuse has taken the form of abandoning their wives and children (especially African men), taking all of the properties acquired and remarrying, sometimes without obtaining a divorce. Seeing all of this has caused Mrs Sieben to say ‘Enough is Enough’ and this has led to the birth of the Women-child Awareness Movement (WAM). This Movement is to make women be aware of their self esteem and how to talk things through in their marriage before things get out of hand.
