THE MOVEMENT

OUR STORY

How it all began...

I remember sitting at my dining room table, while in Lusaka Zambia, and drumming up excitement at the prospect of creating an online magazine for women. Ruvimbo was in the final stages of transitioning back to Zimbabwe after a long stint in London. I was a stay-at-home mom, struggling with the lack of independence that came with my then ten month old and my husband's 12 to 14 hour work days.

Collectively, Ru and I knew there was more to who we were than the hats we wore. We wanted to create a safe-haven for women to share, and listen to one another, as we had listened to each other rant about our frustrations, bask in your joys or musings about why certain things weren’t the way we imagined they ought to be.

 

And so the brainstorming began…

MEET THE FOUNDERS

It's what's on the inside that counts

Yvonne Mtengwa

"Yes I had made some choices during my years in the U.S that I wasn’t particularly proud of, but no longer was I living in regret and self-condemnation."

Ruvimbo Makoni

"To put it bluntly, I was disgusted with the way women always pulled each other down especially as a Christian woman. I knew and know that God has a specific gifting and blessing for everyone"

QF TEAM

The Team keeping the wheels turning...

Michelle Gapara

"I have faced many challenges in my life and have overcome them through an unrelenting determination to get to the place where I live and not just survive."

"I wanted to be what I have become, but what I am becoming is even greater. I love it"
