VISION & MISSION

Our Mission at AYA Consulting is to provide customized consulting services, drawing on our expertise to perfectly meet our clients' needs. In so doing, we strive to provide an empowering and rewarding work environment and build lasting value for the wider society. We seek to create, support and enhance programmes and projects rooted in the desire to showcase the culturally rich realities and talents of the African continent, the Caribbean and diasporic spaces across the world. Not only is our mission strongly rooted in the principles of gender equality but also in consistently promoting gender awareness and engaging in projects with the commitment to urge women to involve themselves in the Arts, Culture and Education.

THE NAME 'AYA'

In the heat of the tropics near the historically known Kingdom of Ghana, centuries of Akan women have carefully adorned their art and fashion with Adinkra symbols. A verdant refrain, the fern — AYA (pronounced as “eye–ah”) — appears and reappears, highlighting their code of beliefs, their knowledge, their attitudes and sense of organization. It refers to Endurance, Independence and Resourcefulness. The logo for AYA Consultancy is enhanced by the stylization of the symbol AYA using the VAI syllabary, a highly sophisticated syllabic writing system found in Liberia.

THE AYA DIGITAL PRESS BOOK

Our clients are as multifaceted as the projects we take on, create or support.  Our digital press book provides a  glimpse of the companies and individuals we have worked with and the events we have designed and launched.

"In the long-run, I see AYA as a hub, space, network, laboratory or think tank, where people come together to create. It’s not just for the sake of art or culture; but also for us to engage with important issues."
