Impact Drivers, a youth-led, women-led non-governmental organisation, welcomes Zimi Mabunzi as their new Brand Ambassador.
The Global Fund 7th Replenishment period underway in South Africa and the rest of the world.
Today Impact Drivers a South African youth-led, women-led organization has announced that former Miss South Africa runner-up Zimi Mabunzi will join the organisation as their brand ambassador. This comes after months of working with Zimi in numerous campaigns that bring awareness to the plight of injustices to adolescent girls and young women in South Africa. The founder Sibulele Sibaca welcomed Zimi stating that it was only fitting that Zimi who is also an activist for the rights of women join the organisation.
Zimi Mabunzi joins the organisation during a crucial time, where the organisation currently in partnership with The Global Fund is raising awareness about the 7th Replenishment period taking place in the world that aims to raise at least $18 billion. The funds will help us get back on track in the fight against HIV, TB and Malaria globally, especially in Africa, which will assist in building resilient and sustainable systems for health, strengthen global health security and pandemic preparedness.
For the past couple of months Impact Drivers has been involved in numerous community and national campaigns to create awareness and talkability around the 7th Replenishment period in hopes to garner support from global leaders and presidents to once again contribute to the fund.
This has been done through educational conferences and vigorous media campaigns in and around South Africa. As an ambassador Zimi will join in the conversation and use her platform to embark on a journey with Impact Drivers through the campaigns to reach the organisation’s goals and objectives.
In South Africa, we are hopeful that the President’s office will announce on the 25th of August 2022, South Africa’s contribution to the fund. This will be followed by the Replenishment Conference held in New York on the 19th-20th of September 2022 where Global Leaders and Presidents will meet to discuss and close the 7th Replenishment period.
