I AM Bindura: Mupandira has been part of I AM Zimbabwe since January 2020. We joined I AM Zimbabwe because we wanted to help the youth in our community to move from the streets to homes. Being a part of I AM Bindura: Mupandira provides many skills for the youth and also protects them from peer pressure because they are always busy. We have 30 members. Many youth were stepping into in early marriages, sex working, drug abuse and ‘njuga’.
I AM Bindura: Mupandira strives to make developments in the community through activities such as education and sports. At the moment we have soccer teams for girl and boys although they don’t have uniforms. We are also educating people about Covid 19 and we are distributing food for COVID-19 relief to the vulnerable, in conjunction with the Aqua Healers team.
Overall, we need the I AM youths to be supported in many skills and to be educated as a means to create better outcomes for our community.
