“My name is Leoba; I am the founder of Ponayi. I am a mother of four of Southern African origin living here in the UK. My journey to this point began a few years ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer which had a devastating effect on my family. I found it very hard to express myself to all those involved in my health care, including my own GP due to various cultural beliefs and hurdles. My story has a happy ending, I was one of the lucky ones and I beat my illness. My journey to recovery was what made me think of setting up a charity which would support people like myself and help them through difficult times.”www.ponayi.org.uk
Our charity is called Vimba which translates to mean ‘hope’ in the native Zimbabwean language Shona. We were established in 2007, registered in the UK in 2008 and have grown considerably from donating bags of food and clothes to running three established feeding and education centres in Zimbabwe and have recently partnered with an AIDS orphanage. www.vimba.co.uk
“From our lived experiences, we have so many practical ways to support the empowerment of girls in the home, school, and community so that what happened to us will never happen to women and girls again. We want a new breed of girl who will walk in the fullness of her potential,”
— Betty Makoni — Director and Founder of Girl Child Network www.girlchildnetworkworldwide.org
The African Baobab Foundation founded in the year 2008, aims to enable and empower marginalised people worldwide through provision of holistic services including healthcare, education, employment, and also helping people understand what Conservation and Tourism is all about and how it impacts our overall well being.Our key specialisation is in provision of full range of support services to disabled people to all ages. Our support services are need based, efficient and timely. People with disabilities have generally poorer health, lower education achievements, fewer economic opportunities and higher rates of poverty than people without disabilities. This is largely due to the lack of services available to them and the many obstacles they face in their everyday lives. http://www.africanbaobabfoundation.org/
