The First Lady foundation, Angel of Hope, will be unveilled in the capital tomorrow.
The foundation seeks to champion the protection of vulnerable groups and promoting of the welfare of disadvantaged communities.
The Angel of Hope Foundation comes as the bearer of hope for many disadvantaged communities and is a fulfillment to the First Lady’s aspirations to assist the disadvantaged in society.
It is a project shaped by her upbringing where she had to take care of her siblings after a divorce when she was still a minor.
The First Lady’s brother Mr Isdore Kutyauripo says these circumstances shaped her sister’s personality and she grew up humble, hardworking and respectful.
It is against this background that the First Lady has shown her unparalleled compassion to those in disadvantaged circumstances.
Preaching on the importance of family and cultural values is a passion that has endeared her favourably in the hearts of many Zimbabweans.
In 1981, she joined the Ministry of Manpower Planning and Development before joining the then Prime Minister’s Office in 1982 where she worked as a researcher until 1997.
She studied for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Hotel and Catering with Gleon Hotel International School in Switzerland from 1999 to 2001.
She then worked for Rainbow Tourism Group from 2002 to 2006 before enrolling with the Midlands State University for a Masters Degree and currently she is pursuing her PhD studies with the same institution.
