Angela

Bread and Water for Africa® has known for years of the determination and dedication of Angela Miyanda and our partner organization that she founded in Zambia – the Kabwata Orphanage and Transit Center, which serves orphans, women and other disadvantaged people.

That is why we are so proud to be able extend our congratulations to Angela for recently being named the Country Winner from Zambia by South Africa’s CEO Magazine in its 2014/15 issue of Africa’s Most Influential Women in Business and Government.

Angela received the award in the “Welfare & Civil Society Organizations” category which recognizes those who “are very active in the field and have acquired an in-depth knowledge of children’s rights, enabling them to make considerable contributions towards improve the lives of children.”

The African Union notes that it is civil society organizations, such as Kabwata, which work with children in Africa and have unrivaled knowledge and experience of their situation which makes them indispensable.

“Their efforts are critical to the sustenance of a morally upright and equal continent,” the magazine noted in presenting the award to Angela recipients from other African countries.

We at Bread and Water for Africa® could not agree more and we congratulate her once again and thank her for all she does to help children and women in Zambia achieve their dreams, and we thank you through your support of Bread and Water for Africa® for helping Angela to realize her dream of helping those most vulnerable.
