Angeline Makore is passionate about uplifting girls and women in grassroots communities through sustainable empowerment and advocacy.
Angel was born and raised in Zimbabwe. She received a Bachelor of Science degree with Honors in Psychology and a Diploma in Law from the University of South Africa. As the Founder and Coordinator of Spark R.E.A.D, she is responsible for fundraising, program implementation, monitoring and evaluation, and stakeholder consultations.
Since becoming a Young Leader, Angel is proud she received The Takeda Young Entrepreneurship Award for her project, Mwedzi Social Enterprise, offering reusable sanitary pads and teaching adolescent girls on menstrual hygiene management. Through her work, she conducted Girls Menstrual Hygiene Management in urban slum colleges and, with other civil society organizations, provided suggestions to the government on the creation of the School Health Policy. Additionally, Angel was chosen as a Peer to Peer Evaluating Judging Panel for the Johnson & Johnson 2017 GenHChallenge and an Ewha Women’s University Global Fellow.
Angel advocates for girls and women because “In every breath I take, somewhere a girl is facing injustices — so it is my duty to address them.”
In her free time, Angel enjoys traveling to heritage sites in her home country and yoga.
