Professor Amivi Kafui Tete-Benissan teaches cell biology and biochemistry

Professor Amivi Kafui Tete-Benissan (left) teaches cell biology and biochemistry at the University of Lomé, in the capital of Togo. She’s also a vocal activist who encourages girls to pursue science as a career path. “Female students represent only 10 percent of our student body in science and engineering,” she says sadly. As head of the association for Togolese women in science, she has started a mentoring program for female students to help them thrive in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math education). As of today, 2,000 young women have benefited from this program. Photo: © Stephan Gladieu / World Bank
