ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Troubled by the state of poverty that characterized some individuals and households in the country, she decided to allocate some of her time, energy, expertise and resources towards the creation and delivery of solutions that could alleviate the problem. Her husband supported her fully and became the first donor and volunteer for WITAD. In 2015 they supported a vulnerable family-of-four in Malindza with food, personal care products and clothing. They built a brick and mortar house for the family with the assistance of and donations from local community members. From that year up to 2019, the founder learnt about the complexity of poverty and vulnerability. This inspired her to aim for better outcomes by facilitating the transformation of mind-sets of the target population and delivering sustainable programs for children, women and the youth.
