INTRODUCTION/ABOUT US

Dedicated to enterprising single / lone mothers


The birth of W.E.F. (Women Empowerment Forum) was from getting together of women with a common circumstance/situation in the middle of many other circumstances that women face in their day to day lives. It is therefore the reason for this forum, mainly to focus on SINGLE OR LONE PARENTING but without limiting ourselves to being single parents permanently.

My name is Farisai Dzemwa, a humble Christian woman who is passionate and driven. My mission and passion is about women development, empowerment and support through forums.

W.E.M. is to be a global forum as we grow and build confidence in each other through sharing experiences, ideas, skills and suggestions & tips on common challenging single parenting issues such as: motherhood, parenting, education, employment/careers, businesses or enterprises and relationships etc.



WORDS THAT ENDORSE OR CORRABORATE OUR PURPOSE:



Support, Encourage, Motivate, Inspire, Equip, Recreate, Educate, Facilitate, Uplift ,Advocate.


We are a non-judgemental forum that does not blame, criticize or ridicule any members, followers or supporters. CHAMPIONING, ADVOCATING AND SUPPORTING ONE ANOTHER AS A GROUP OF UNSUNG HEROS IS WHAT WE ARE ALL ABOUT.

Yes indeed we should consider ourselves as such and we believe we should be seen as such too. Hopefully our vision, our works and our topics of discussion will reveal ad corroborate this view.

We aspire to see positive change, transformation of mindsets, attitudes and standards through our discussions, teachings, activities and engagements in our communities.
