Outstanding Woman Award 2011 for Jenny Fraai

A full room at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Curaçao witnessed the result of jurors who chose Jenny Fraai out of 9 nominee’s as the 2011 Outstanding Woman. This recognition is being given now for the 6th consecutive time during the annual women conference in Curaçao organized by Bright Ideas and Services. The theme this year was ‘About Women and Creativity’.

Jenny Fraai is the founder of Pro Alfa, the organization that teaches adults to read and to write, something that is still a problem for many in Curaçao. Pro Alfa during almost three decades has many times struggled to make ends meet to be able to continue with their work. Jenny Fraai went speechless when the
recognition was announced. She later said that this means a lot to her and that this indeed is a big recognition.

This year’s award was a beautiful high heel shoe from newspapers and beads. The high heel symbolizes how high and elegant the outstanding woman stood during her career to have other women benefitting from it today. 

Organizer of the annual women conference in Curaçao with this year the topic ‘About Women and Creativity’ and of the ‘Outstanding Woman Award’; Reyna Joe, expressed her gratitude for the work done by the jurors and that she knows how difficult their job was.

The past Outstanding Women are: 2010 midwife Eugenia Thelma Brunings, 2009 educator Mila Palm, 2008 ex prime minister Lucina da Costa Gomez, 2007 kindergarten teacher now deceased Zelma ‘Chèma’ Maduro and 2006 it was the founder of the cleaning company ‘Servisio Na Bo Òrdu’ Nilda Juliana Jansen.
