The Mission – To inspire, empower, encourage and to educate the minds of women from all races, cultures and creeds.
The Criteria – Women who, through consistency and longevity, have achieved success in a chosen profession or career are eligible for consideration. Potential honorees are those persons who are viewed not only for what they have individually achieved but also for the achievement they inspire in others.
The correct pronunciation of ACHI is "Aah Chee". The word ACHI has different meanings in different languages.In Chinese ACHI means big sister. In Nigerian its strength and in Arabic it simplly means sisterhood. Based on these definitions, we define ACHI as “Strength in Sisterhood”. Through this work, we will contribute to the personal growth and empowerment of our sisters through the sharing of experiences, knowledge and ideas. For more information on ACHI Magazine CLICK HERE.
