Vanavevhu Welcomes Sandra Masaka and Laura Miller

Sandra Masaka has signed onto the Bulawayo team as marketing and communications intern, working in tandem with Innocent Mukute. Sandra was born in Gweru and raised in Bulawayo. She graduated in 2012 from Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa, with a B.A. in Law and Politics and in 2013 with an honours degree in International Relations. Sandra has a deep sense of justice and commitment to the empowerment of the marginalized and is interested in issues of sustainable development in developing countries. She has become Vanavevhu's social media wizard.

Laura Miller has joined Vanavevhu as external relations coordinator. Laura was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a B.A. in International Relations and Communications, Laura spent time in Southern and Eastern Africa. As part of that experience, she volunteered at a rural Kenyan orphanage and traveled throughout the region. This trip reinforced her desire to work with a socially conscious organization, emphasizing youth empowerment and sustainable living. Laura is a part of our development and fundraising team and focuses on building and enhancing Vanavevhu's presence in the United States. We are delighted to have her on board.
