Girl Child Empowerment Trust (GCET
Malilangwe partners with GCET in funding and hosting a week-long educational camp which is held annually at Hakamela Camp. GCET’s goal is to develop young women who are confident, socially adjusted, and economically empowered.
The GCET program is aimed at 30 girls (ages 10 to 16) who are chosen from ten neighboring community schools. During the week the girls are enlightened by guest speakers who are professional in their own fields about an array of topics. The course covers personal and reproductive health rights in Zimbabwean law, puberty, menstrual health and feminine hygiene, the effects of HIV/AIDS, and breast and cervical cancers. They learn about the importance of women having an education and the guest speakers offer career guidance. The girls are counseled on emotional and mental issues, including the effects of bullying. The course equips the girls with an array of life skills which include financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and leadership.
GCET was established in 2012 by Morenlet Muravu who a teacher, social worker, and motivational speaker is.
