Australian Ambassador joins CAMFED Zimbabwe to celebrate female entrepreneurship on International Women’s Day
In Harare, CAMFED Association entrepreneurs, Learner Guides, representatives from Mother Support Groups, and CAMFED Zimbabwe Executive Director Dr. Shungu Gwarinda joined the Australian Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Bronte Moules, to celebrate International Women’s Day.
They highlighted the positive impact of women-led businesses that are combining value-addition with sustainability, showcasing products such as accessories made from recycled materials, peanut butter, edible insects (a low-carbon source of protein), and dried fruits (a method of reducing food waste and providing income to farmers out of season). The Ambassador donated two bicycles to CAMFED Association members to support our women leaders to reach vulnerable girls in rural communities.
