The inspirational story of Shamwari Yemwanasikana (SYS) was conceptualised by Ekenia Chifamba, who is the Founding Director

of the organization. The background of the community she grew up in which is the high density suburb of Chitungwiza where a marginal increase in cases involving violence against girls and women was what she came across daily, gave her the courage to become the game changer she is today.

The thrust to form an organization that drove the Founding Director was her unconditional passion to see the girl child liberated and uplifted thus having been involved in working for the empowerment of the girl child in child centred non profit making organisations for many years, she and some of her like-minded colleagues could not fold hands and watch the girl child languishing. SYS as an organisation was formed with the aim of emancipating the girl child from all forms of abuse that have and continue to hinder her development. The heart of the organisation is to address the concerns of the girl child and protect her from all issues that have the potential to destroy her dreams, hopes and full development. Therefore the organisation comprises of committed young men and women who each has a story of their own and having all been in organisations that fight for the rights of children and women, came together, combining intellectual and material resources to take up the fight for girls’ rights to a higher level ensuring these young people become future empowered women, a rare breed of women who are not victims but victors in all spheres of life, despite one’s race or creed.
