Advocate Regina Bwanali hopes that her participation in the Mandela Washington Fellowship (MWF) for Young African Leaders will “fortify her leadership skills, horn her advocacy capacity, broaden her network, expand her dreams as well as assist her in establishing programs that have an investment in women, girls and children’s’ projects as a core component.”
Regina views the fellowship as “an enlightening and massive networking program that is founded on the principles of Mandela’s servant leadership which are nurturing the ideal, humble and resilient for Africa.”
As an advocate of the Superior Courts of Zimbabwe practicing at the Advocate’s Chambers of Zimbabwe, Regina has in past years conducted research, drafted, advised and argued on prominent legal issues including but not limited to constitutional law, labor law, family law and property law.
Apart from making strides in the legal world, Regina sits on the board of a community driven project that she founded called Supernal Investments. No stranger to community and civic education, Regina is also an active member of the Law Society and Zimbabwe Women Lawyers Association.
Regina also fuses her flair for communication and love for the law by volunteering in diverse community projects. These include the Nokutenda Trust, a project in the high density suburbs of Zimbabwe for assisting the mentally challenged and their caregivers.
She has presented diverse papers on critical issues that affect women, girls and children.
Upon her return from the fellowship where she will spend six weeks at the University of Delaware in Newark, Regina will continue her work in creating and engaging in community projects that have a civic leadership and entrepreneurship component to them.
