According to the business mogul, she creates businesses because others have to survive, take care of family and other responsibilities as expected of them.

In the past few months, she has partnered with the Ford Motor Foundation through her charity organization to empower rural women in agriculture by helping them cultivate hundreds of acres in some selected villages  in the Savanna region.

In August 2020, school-going children in the Asuogyaman district started benefiting from the menstrual health awareness program. Many young girls were screened and also received packs of sanitary pads from her. Many other communities including Asuom, Frankadua, Asikuma, Akuse, New somanya, Akuse all benefited in this life-changing initiative.

In October 2021 she was made face of ‘Girls for the future initiative by Schools Support Project to mentor young girls who are also passionate about their future.  During the maiden edition of the program at Tamatoku at Ada in the Greater Accra region, Hajj Fawzie encouraged young girls present not to be afraid of failing, reminding them that it’s also part of the growth process. She also added that classroom education a lot is not enough, that’s why they have to take such mentorship projects seriously. She ended up by urging the leadership of Ghana Education Service to constantly engage young girls in extra curricular activities that will rekindle their desire in them.
