— Public Health

Led by Prosper Maposa; The public health pillar is interested in health promotion, health education, public health awareness campaigns and health policy advocacy. The pillar has been working well in partners with the EndFund and Higherlife Foundation in projects focusing on Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs). 


— Education & Development

Led by Kudzai, the Pillar is aimed at human capital development through knowledge transfer. It endeavors to facilitate education in various domains and sectors. The vision of the pillar is to directly contribute to the education and development of our Shapers and the community at large. Currently two projects are running; Shaped Financial Literacy and The Shaper Development project which is to facilitate the continued personal development/empowerment of each member of our hub. 


— Policy and Advocacy

The projects under this pillar are guided by the knowledge that young people are active drivers of change in local communities and deserve to have the space and recognition to participate in translation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals & the African Union Agenda 2063 into local, national and regional policy, in implementation, in monitoring and review and in holding our governments accountable. We recognize that this pillar acts as a support point for all other pillars and we commit to assist with research on policies around the projects submitted under the pillars, publish research and offer recommendations in order to ensure all the projects, particularly those with an advocacy element are guided by facts.


— Media & Marketing function

Led by Rodrick, this team within a team works as support to all projects, events and operations of the hub. As a function, they make sure the hub’s communications to the outside world are in order. They run all electronic and e-based communication channels including social media with the input of other hub members. They also ensure documentation and archiving of events is done properly.


— PR & Partnerships function
