Event description

Description

We represent a fraction of Zimbabwean women, living in the diaspora and have been brought together by new developments in our motherland Zimbabwe. Many of us waited for a "New Zimbabwe" to come. And now that it is here the Zimbabwean women individuals and organisations alike are uniting to set our agenda on how to engage the current government in ensuring our knowledge, skills and experience we have all acquired over the years are shared for the development of our beloved country, Zimbabwe.

AGENDA

1. We have a conference for Zimbabwe Women Diaspora Global Forum coming on 26 January 2018 where we will launch our forum and announce how we will engage the Zimbabwe government. We will officially announce our inclusive Interim Committee and constitution.

2. We seek to negotiate rehabilitation of women asylum seekers whose decisions are still pending and have been victims of sexual exploitation and slavery. This has had a massive impact on their mental

Health. We want to engage UN and UK government on what rehabilitation could work out for them. Charity begins at home.

2. We have a lot of highly experienced women in the diaspora whose profiles will be shared online and on our website. Creating a new Zimbabwe means knowledge sharing. The amazing professional women from Zimbabwe want to be deployed in public service as trainers and consultants. We have the database and we need to work out modalities with the government to make this official.

3. Women in the diaspora want to undertake a joint investment project in Zimbabwe. We want to engage government on one investment pilot project where we pull financial resources as women and invest as groups on a share basis. Involving us in Agriculture or manufacturing projects is but one way to make a huge contribution.

4. Women in the diaspora make the biggest donations to families via remittances. We want to engage government on official channels we could remit funds for small incentives. Building families through our remittances is building Zimbabwe.

5. Women in the diaspora want to find ways to set up peace and reconciliation and healing platforms. We have expertise in this area and we want to reach those areas of Zimbabwe and do awareness and engaging communities. We want to work out modalities.

6. We recognise existence of our sisters who are already running organisations and we will not reinvent the wheel but collaborate with them.

7. We have a massive platform of women who work within mental health departments as mental health nurse, social workers, and counsellors. They are willing to work with the Government to share their knowledge, skills and expertise and help shape the mental health facilities in Zimbabwe.
