In some ways, it’s fair to say that the project was initiated by the Gogo’s in Zimbabwe, they demonstrated their courage and needs, the Zimbabwean diaspora responded to that need and today we are supporting people in Zimbabwe and impacting vulnerable lives. The structures fall into place once the core values have been established. The project was initiated by Dorcas Gwata, a Zimbabwean Global Health Consultant, we love that everyone feels part of it. The project demonstrates the power of the collective.
Our Community Champions on the ground who are Mbare residents and know the community well, are a strong and diverse group of men and women, whose interests lie in mental health awareness and support, community-based projects, poetry, graphic design and skateboarding. Their individuality is what makes them Champions who are keen on assisting their community in their own unique way.
Our project runs purely on donations, which we use to buy the groceries and essentials that are needed for each grandmother. After each distribution we come together with feedback and go again finding a new set of Gogo’s to support. We are constantly evaluating our work and impact.
