Bekezela Nsingo was born and raised inZimbabwe. She studied sociology at the University of Glamorgan and she is now based in Cardiff, Wales. Beke founded the African Mothers Foundation International in 2008 after an emotional journey back toZimbabwe.
Bekezela grew up in ruralZimbabwewith all the same problems that these girls face today but she is now determined to be part of the solution. She believes that educating girls breaks the cycle of poverty and creates change within their communities.
AMFI provides young women and girls with equal access to opportunities that ensure they get the investment and recognition they deserve, enabling them to reach their full potential and to become powerful agents of change.
“I love seeing the girl’s motivation to create change and make things better for themselves. AMFI has given me a helicopter view of the situation and the privilege to land and watch change happen. Seeing what girls can achieve when working together is amazing. When you work with women and girls inAfricait is important to recognize what can be achieved by listening to them and treating them with respect.”
Bekezela is now a multi award winner and has just received a recognition Award in acknowledgment of her outstanding contributions and achievements from the Women for Africa.
