FRANCISCA KOMBE

Consultant

I was brought up on strong ethics of love by my own parents who were devout Catholics. This foundation laid from childhood directed me to the call to share love with those under privileged. It was not until 2003 when a friend called Alice introduced me to L’arche, an organization that has the ethos of caring for the  disabled that it resonated with me that I can adopt their principle of love for others and be of support. I currently sit at their board as a President and I'm honoured to be part of worthy causes that empower people with disabilities (PWD) especially in Africa where the narrative of ‘curses’ on such persons is still hold.

 

I embrace the persons within and stand to work with organisations like Hope & Salvation to leave an imprint in the hearts of PWD as they never chose to be this way. I am a retired lecturer with the University of Zimbabwe but spend my time now offering my services to PWD and also teaching at a Catholic University of Zimbabwe. I am the Author of  the book 'Gender Reflection in the content of English Language'.

I realise that being a parent is a hard job, but having a child with a disability facing the stigma and lack of resources is even 10x as hard and so I spent some of my time counselling families with children with a disability and signpost them to services and resources wherever I can.
