Zimbabwean Mandela Washington Fellows Loice Kapondo (YALI-MWF 2017) and Thubelihle Ndlovu (YALI-MWF 2017) used a Leveraging Innovations in New Communities (LINC) grant to develop an entrepreneurial capacity building program for Zimbabwean businesswomen and conduct an online survey to gather data on the impact COVID-19 has had on women entrepreneurs as well as identifying the challenges they face in adapting to fluctuating pandemic restrictions. Loice and Thubelihle used the survey results to create a virtual training course for 120 Zimbabwean women on financial literacy, branding, and online tools to assist teleworking.

Mandela Washington Fellow (YALI-MWF 2017) Nkanyezi Malunga’s Vikela iCovid 19 project trains women in Tsholotsho, Nyamandlovu, Matobo and Lupane to produce masks using local resources to guard against the COVID virus. Malunga donates the masks to families and children in the communities. Through producing masks for people to use, the project has helped cushion the burden of purchasing masks for communities strained by the pandemic. Interest in participating in the project continues to build, with an expansion to Gwanda, Nsiza, and Tokwana as well as young people organizing their own mask production efforts.

This Father’s Day we celebrate 23-year-old Last, an artisanal miner, or “mukorokoza,” for making the healthy choice to get circumcised.
“I used to shun the Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision program, until I realized I needed it. I was having unprotected sex with several sex workers. When I make money out here, away from home, I get sexual pleasure from the sex workers who come to where I will be panning for gold. In my line of work, I hardly have condoms on me when the ladies come to offer their services. Having indulged a lot of times not using protection, and being aware of the risks involved, that was my motivation to get circumcised.”
Operating in the Ngezi area, Last, is one of many “makorokoza” whose HIV risk profile is high, as he spends long periods away from his partner laboring for survival. When he makes money from the gold, he gets sexual services from the sex workers.
“I was very happy with the quality of service I got, from the transportation and the health education from the nurse provider. The nurse informed me to continue to further reduce my risk of HIV infection by using condoms and not rely on the circumcision alone. I am now a proud champion and advocate for the circumcision program among my peers,” says Last.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through funds from the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is working with the ZAZIC consortium promoting voluntary medical male circumcision for eligible males aged 15 and above. Targeting the artisanal miners has yielded positive results in Chegutu, Kadoma, Mberengwa, Gokwe, Hurungwe, Matobo and Mhondoro as services are being provided right where the artisanal miners are! #VMMC is safe, accessible, and effective!
