msmasukuMs. Josephine Masuku – Public Relations Officer & Harare Representative

Ms. Masuku is a diligent woman who is passionate about children and the plight of those in need in general. She comes into the organisation with a wealth of teaching experience in the disadvantaged rural schools where she taught English at high school after completing her teacher education at Hillside Teachers College.

Currently, Ms. Masuku works at Zimbabwe Television (ZTV) where she is a News Producer. Her duties and responsibilities at Pockets Hill include preparing and making appropriate news presentation based on collected stories and articles. She also selects stories for transmission. Added to that she compiles and writes articles for news bulletins together with producing items highlighting the plight of different people who need help. This wide range of experience Ms. Masuku has will certainly help our organisation grow. Her biggest task would be for her to promote our organisation’s image to the wider world using her experience from her job. Since she is based in our capital city, Harare, she would also be responsible for liaising with foreign embassies and other local and International NGOs based in the capital city.

mrzuluMr. Cosmas ‘Tsano’ Zulu – Sports Development Officer

Mr. Zulu is a soccer person. He has played soccer at the highest level, having played for the Zimbabwe’s oldest soccer club, Highlanders. He also played for the now defunct Olympics Football Club. Mr. Zulu has also coached and managed Highlanders and in 2014 he was the club’s Technical Advisor. This wide experience in the beautiful game makes him a perfect fit for the role of Sports Development Officer in our organisation. One of our organisation’s aims is to provide soccer and other sports equipment. However, a number of our rural teachers do not the proper skills to coach soccer to the children. One of Mr. Zulu’s main tasks therefore is to organise and running run soccer workshops for teachers in the schools where we would have donated equipment so that it could be put to better use. Not only does Mr. Zulu have a very deep knowledge of the game, he is also a very good motivator who wants this done. He is a go getter who loves new challenges. Currently, he is the Technical Advisor for the Bulawayo Christian Soccer League. We are certainly extremely fortunate having a man of Mr. Zulu’s calibre on our team.
