By Idah Mhetu

CELEBRATED media personality Thabani Gambiza of the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation has been appointed the Zimbabwe Ambassador for a United States of America (USA) based organisation, Sister Accord, which launched its first African branch in Zimbabwe recently.

The women rights advocate says the Sister Accord strives to educate young girls and women the power of sisterhood and also eradicates bullying and violence against women and girls 

“I am excited to announce that Thabani is the new ambassador for Zimbabwe. She has been doing amazing works in Zimbabwe, helping women to love each other and work together. We are celebrating the 8th anniversary for Sister Accord and we are launching Sister Accord Africa in Zimbabwe,” said Sonia Jackson Myles, Sister Accord Founder and Chairperson. 

Gambiza, who is elated about the development, highlighted how it will assist in the empowerment of women and girls.

“A lot of initiatives are in the pipeline. We would like to reach out to women and girls in both rural and urban areas with educative and empowering programmes. I am so excited about the appointment and the launch of Sister Accord in Africa, particularly in Zimbabwe.” 

Established in 2013 in the United States of America, Sister Accord early this year, launched a Shona Menstrupedic comic book in a bid to provide an educational resource that eradicates barriers to menstrual health for young girls.

Gambiza also works with girls and women through her Thabani Patience Manjenjenje Foundation Trust, where she shares entrepreneurial skills and advocates for the rights of the two groups in sexual reproductive health, education and poverty eradication, among many other areas.
