Global Activism: Vanavevhu assists orphaned children who head households in Zimbabwe

It’s Thursday, and time for our Global Activism series. Each Thursday, we hear about an individual who’s decided to work to make the world a better place.

Today, our segment is about Zimbabwe. And with us is one of our former Global Activists, Elizabeth Mhangami. She’s Founder and Executive Director of Vanavevhu Children of the Soil. And they support families where children, who mostly lost their parents to AIDS, are now running their households.

Join Vanavevhu at Mars Gallery for an evening of live music, videos and photos. Enjoy complimentary drinks and appetizers. Hear about its first year in Bulawayo and their vision for the future. Go to this link for RSVP info.
