A Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) title is awarded to people for making a positive impact in their line of work.

MBE is the third highest-ranking Order of the British Empire award, behind Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) which is first and then Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE).

People selected for the honorary award are invited to an inauguration, a special ceremony in which honour is given by a member of the Royal Family.

Recipients can start using their new title or letters after their name as soon as the award is announced.

Although it may come off as impossible to achieve one of these titles due to the belief that one needs to be affiliated to some powerful men or women to smile at the identification, it is far from the truth.

Well, some women of valour have broken boundaries in Ghana and have been bestowed ‘MBE’ because of their diligent service.
