Greetings from Zimbabwe.

I am a young and talented multi-lingual poet-musician and award-winning journalist working for Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation on social, economic, religious and political issues including HIV/AIDS, gender issues, women's and children's rights. I believe poets and writers are prophets, the ears and eyes of the society. They are watch dogs who strive for the betterment of communities. They always hold on to the past and predict the future.

I got to know about your organisation and magazine recently when I had an interview with the World Young Women's Christian Association Secretary General, Nyaradzayi Gumbonzanda. I would like to make contributions in your magazine and share with you the stories of Zimbabwean women. I would like to also network with you so as to widen my skills on gender related issues, especially towards the emancipation of children and women. I also use my skills in music to touch on issues affecting women.

I liked the layout and contents of your magazine and enjoyed reading Fransina's and Colleen's articles in your October 2008 edition. I am a member of Gender Media Southern Africa-Zimbabwe and other journalistic and women's organisations.

Regards

Nqobile Malinga

Dear Nqobile

we look forward to receiving your contributions and to networking with you!
