Zamo Shongwe, the IkamvaYouth National Coordinator has been featured in a Mail and Guardian Book called, ” The Mail and Guardian Book of South African Women.” Tuesday 7th of August was a very memorable day for IkamvaYouth as the nation celebrated and acknowledged Zamo and other women who have dedicated their lives to making South Africa a better nation. These women featured in the book, were noted to be women who have achieved the impossible, frequently with few or no resources.

The 2012 edition of the book was launched at Middleton Hotel in Sandton and was filled with laughter, fun, art , entertainment and a call for women to do more in our communities. The book which started seven years ago is a celebration of our country’s women and is supported by Nedbank.

We are all so proud of you Zamo!
