Congratulations to our Staff Advocate!

We congratulate Mwinji Nambela on being called to the Bar!

This is a great achievement for her and for UP Zambia. We are proud of this achievement especially because Mwinji joined UP Zambia as an intern in 2018 and has worked so hard both for herself and to help children in her role here.

“I am just grateful to God. At ZIALE you are in a class with the brightest minds, almost everyone is putting in work, so when you pass on first attempt you know God allowed it. During this time, UP Zambia gave me the best chance of my entire lifetime!” Mwinji said with a smile.

Mwinji is one of the many young professionals who joined UP Zambia as interns. We believe that it is important to mentor young professionals and expose them to the challenges on the ground faced by the most vulnerable in society. To these ends, UP Zambia has adopted a model of working with students and recent graduates in law, social work, and other fields to meet the needs of real clients.

We wish Mwinji even greater achievements as she continues to serve the vulnerable children in Zambia!
