Africa Cancer Foundation
Zawadi is an Afropolitan feminist digital native, working as a free agent to use her non-profit experience, creativity, social media skills, extensive global networks, fundraising expertise, spirituality, passion & fire for social justice to create the world she wants to see. She has been working in the field of sexual and reproductive rights for almost seven years, and advocating for women's rights for over ten years. In 2010 she published a book with Akina Mama wa Afrika, called, "When I Dare to be Powerful" - a collection of short stories told by five women who are engaged in sex work in East Africa. She has worked with several women's rights organizations, including the Association of Women's Rights in Development (AWID) in Mexico, and Urgent Action Fund-Africa, an African women's fund that is based in Nairobi where she is from. She is currently acting as the CEO of the newly established Africa Cancer Foundation, whose mission is to promote the prevention of cancer and provide holistic solutions to people affected by cancer in Africa.
