About Girl Grandeur

Our Origins Story

Two women, Thembelihle Terry-Lynne Zulu and Buhlebenkosi Mhlanga, founded Girl Grandeur Zimbabwe in 2013 as a social club for girls and women in hopes that it would address the lack of an informal club for women to just come together and have fun and build friendships. This club was to help women to share their experiences and advise each other on their respective grievances.

What We Do

Girl Grandeur Zimbabwe informs policymakers about girls’ needs locally and nationally. The organization educates the media about critical issues facing girls. The founders were concerned about the unique issues that were plaguing young girls in this digital era and they realized that these were different from the conventional issues that are addressed by NGOs and women’s organisations. They felt that young girls needed a recreational space that would be fun and beneficial at the same time.
