Nolwazi is currently studying her Doctorate in Sociology of Reproduction at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. She launched a rural outreach program known as “Save the Girl-with-a-Vision”, aimed at reducing schoolgirl absenteeism linked to a lack of access to sanitary wear.

She will also be launching the “Break the Silence” campaign in partnership with the community and local authorities to promote survivors of rape and sexual violence to report their cases to a victim-friendly justice system.

This dynamic young woman plans to specialize in the field of Sexual and Reproductive Health and hopes to become a widely cited expert in this field; and wants to expand her NGO activities.

In late April 2018, Nolwazi launched the Let’s Get Padded Up in partnership with the Rotaract Club of Harare West, the Rotaract Club of Borrowdale Brooke and her charity (Save the Girl Child Movement’s) sister organization the Southern African Women’s Institute for Development Affairs (SAWIDA).
