Award-winning free enterprise enthusiast Tinotenda Pasi is using her skills to raise funds to promote women’s and youth empowerment initiatives that target survivors of gender-based violence and provide them with sound business opportunities to sustain their livelihoods.
She developed her growing passion by participating in the Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) organization as a fellow, where she received various honors at SIFE World Cup competitions for her passion for community development through business. These include the Medal of Honor in France (2006), USA (2007) and Singapore (2008).
“I believe development is a collective effort and that the individual efforts of young Zimbabwean leaders in their respective fields all contribute to that collective effort,” she says . . .
