The Zanele Mbeki Development Trust (ZMDT) is an independent, nonpartisan, Public Benefit
Organisation which is committed to improving the status of African women by engaging national governments, the private sector, civil society, and donors in partnerships to shape communal, municipal, provincial, national, and continental agendas. ZMDT is impartial and not-for-profit. It is tied to no political or partisan interests.
As African women, we, therefore, pledge to be respectful of one another and our communities, be trustworthy, accountable, and fulfill our responsibilities of servant leadership with commitment, diligence, inclusivity, honesty, and integrity. Striving for excellence will underpin all our actions.
