The Akashinga, which means ‘The Brave Ones’ in Shona, are a remarkable team of women wildlife rangers. They protect nature conservation areas across 9 million acres in Botswana, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania.

Akashinga began in Zimbabwe with a group of just 16 women, all survivors of assault or impacted by AIDS or HIV. Through the organisation’s investment in local infrastructure and social impact, the lives of the Akashinga women have been transformed. Additionally, their communities have experienced significant improvements in healthcare, education, access to clean water, and sustainable employment opportunities.

The Akashinga rangers are changing perceptions of women in conservation, proving time and time again that women can and should lead in the protection of nature and wildlife. If you would like to learn more, please visit their website.
