After nearly 10 years, our wonderful Executive Director (and since July 2022 co-Executive Director with Happy Mwende Kinyili) zohra moosa is leaving Mama Cash to make space for new leadership. As she prepared to depart, zohra reflected on some of Mama Cash’s important achievements and milestones, as well as serious challenges, since 2013 when she joined the organisation.
In her farewell letter, “In Movement Together: Reflecting on a Decade with Mama Cash”, zohra shares her thoughts and memories of a decade in Mama Cash’s leadership. Join zohra as she reflects on receiving a $20 million gift from U.S. philanthropist MacKenzie Scott, navigating the uncharted waters of a global pandemic, transitioning Mama Cash to becoming a fully participatory grantmaker, and experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime evening as an invited VIP guest at Beyoncé’s Amsterdam concert in 2018. These are just a few of the interesting and remarkable moments lifted up in her reflections.
