The face of Vlisco Women’s Month 2015 was award-winning Congolese singer-songwriter Barbara Kanam. We think Barbara is a great example on how you can turn your dreams into reality by making considered decisions. Since she was a little girl, Barbara showed an enormous passion for music. However, it was not until she begun her studies at University that Barbara decided that music was her future. She chose to live her dream. She‘s also a shining example of a woman who uses her success to empower others. Through her work as founder of the Kanam Foundation and Ambassador of the Shitowa Foundation, Barbara helps to rebuild the lives of Congolese women and children affected by the war in her country.
