The African Women Association (AWA) aims to create and recognize new young female role models within Zimbabwe, Africa and the diaspora. To announce the launch of this initiative, AWA has organized a launch cocktail this Saturday at Allo Allo Restaurant for stakeholders, the press and leading personalities from business, academia etc. The guest of honour will be Minister of Youth and Indigenisation, Chris Mushowe.
