Winner of the National Diversity Awards 2012
Positive Role Model Award for Gender
Bekezela Nsingo is a social Entrepreneur originally from the remote Insiza district in Filabusi. She is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of The African Mothers Foundation International, an international development organisation headquartered in Wales. The organisation helps women rebuild their battered lives through various developmental projects. Bekezela has supported thousands of girls, mostly the forgotten children of Zimbabwe through her Keep Girls in School Campaign.
She has built two libraries in remote areas where children’s illiteracy was ruling and has also campaigned for electricity to be installed at a secondary school. Most of the student’s Bekezela assists come from poor families and many are orphans. Bekezela grew up with all the same problems that these girls face today but she is now determined to be part of the solution, believing that educating girls breaks the cycle of poverty and creates change within their communities.
She is a true inspiration.
