THE JCI City Zimbabwe, an affiliate of Junior Chamber International Zimbabwe (JCI Zimbabwe) – a membership-based non-profit organisation of young active citizens aged between 18 and 40 – will on Thursday host its opening night in the capital.
The opening night is an annual event where organisation hosts stakeholders from Government, civil society and the corporate world.
Finance and Economic Development Minister Mr Patrick Chinamasa will be the keynote speaker at the event, while the 2014 JCI executive vice President for Africa & the Middle East Senator, Victor Marawu, will be the guest of honour.
“The opening night ceremony, which while being a membership event, is also a platform for active citizens to meet with key stakeholders to find common ground.
“JCI (101 years old) is a membership-based non-profit organisation of young active citizens ages 18 to 40. JCI members are engaged and committed to creating impact in their communities. With around 5 000 JCI local organisations in more than 120 countries, JCI forms a vibrant global community of nearly 200 000 actives. “Active citizens are individuals invested in the future of their community. They develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to make informed decisions and take action. JCI members are active citizens from all sectors of society – business owners, government officials, doctors, entrepreneurs, teachers, public officials, social workers and students. JCI members embrace new ideas collaboration and diversity,” the organisation said in a statement last week.
