SHE  is a platform to show and talk about the women of Kitwe.  It has nothing to do with social standing, wealth, beauty, disability, education, profession, success etc.  No.  It is simply ‘The Women of Kitwe’ and will therefore endeavour not to have any form of bias.

    Hello, I lived in Kitwe many years ago. In fact right back in 1957, just before Christmas we arrived and moved into a flat. I loved Kitwe from the start, my school was St.Johns Convent and later I went to Kitwe Girls High School. This year, in June I am going back for the first time since I left in 1962 at the age of fourteen. I would love to visit St.John’s, and to see the places we lived in. My memory is rusty and of course names have changed but I think our first home was in “Lazaravik” Flats? I am wondering if that is now called Fipande Flats.
