Networking
Through fieldwork supervision I have met social work practitioners who are keen to work together with the Department of social work in the training of students who are competent in rendering services to individuals, groups and communities.

Community Service
As a voluntary social worker, at PHOEBE Zimbabwe, working with women and girls recovering from mental illness I am involved in peer to peer support, psychosocial support and self-esteem building in communities. This engagement has the potential to boost the Social Work Clinic to be established in the department.
