I served as the first Public relations officer in 2009 and was later elected as the as the President of the organisation. My vision is to transform Solid Rock Association into a vibrant organisation that responds to the needs and aspirations of the members. Throughout my career I have accumulated more than 20 years’ experience working with non-governmental organisations and underserved communities.
My other work has included co-founding the Take Pride in Ghana Association, and also serving as the Administrator of Sucardif Association, an NGO in special consultative status with ECOSOC since 2011.
Over the years I have gained a wealth of experience working with deprived youths and handicraft producers as both a field operations officer for Youth Empowerment & Job Creation skill training programs, and as a co-founder of Solid Rock. I have a passion for Ghanaian/African arts and cultural artifacts, which has driven my work in the livelihoods sector.
A well trust fellow to wind-hold a proactive/progressive organizational sail.
Originally from Scotland, I moved to Ghana following the completion of my degree in product design engineering. After spending three months working with a livelihoods NGO in the north of the country I joined Solid Rock here in Accra. I’m really enjoying life in my new home, and am forever grateful for being accepted into a new community that has given me the opportunity to help.
My key roles in the organisation include working with local producers to improve product quality and general business development.
Born in Wichita, Kansas but often says, 'I wasn't born in Africa but Africa was born in me.' As a young teen Shukura became passionate about her history, culture and African heritage which has led her to undertake different community projects, from screening for sickle cell anaemia, to organizing Saturday schools to teach African history and tradition, to creating the black Infant mortality project to address the high number of deaths of black babies. Shukura has travelled all over the U.S. speaking on the struggle for human rights and has even participated in lecture tours of Europe.
She is executive member of Solid Rock Association and fund raiser for SRA activities in the US.
