Maud ChifambaYoung Achiever - Education (Zimbabwe) 2014


At the prestigious International Conference organized by the renowned charity organization, Terra Des Homme, based in Switzerland, which advocates for children’s rights worldwide, a name resonates through the hall – “Maud Chifamba from Zimbabwe!” Unlike the seasoned speakers before her, Maud stands out as a stark contrast. In the midst of the distinguished and high-profile audience, she appears remarkably young and somewhat inexperienced – a mere teenager. However, her presence exudes an air of unwavering confidence as she begins her speech on the “Role of Education in the Empowerment of Women,” drawing hearty applause from the esteemed attendees.

Maud’s journey to this momentous occasion has been one of continuous growth and determination. Despite facing numerous challenges, she persevered and eventually seized a remarkable opportunity when the Vice-Chancellor of Zimbabwe University offered her a place to study her dream degree – Accountancy. In doing so, she made history by becoming the youngest student ever enrolled in a university across Africa. Her story is a testament to the power of education and determination in overcoming obstacles and achieving one’s dreams.
