Opportunities for Sthn African Women/Kimble Memorial
The Judy Kimble Memorial Fund is a charitable trust set up by the friends of Dr Judy Kimble, a staunch opponent of apartheid, racism and the oppression of women to commemorate her life and work. It was inaugurated at a crowded Memorial meeting in December 1986, and since then has grown through generous donations from individuals and other charities. Its aim is the advancement of the education of Southern African women, in particular to assist them to develop their potential and broaden their understanding of the roots of oppression. The Fund awards an annual travel/study grant to a Southern African woman to visit a neighbouring African country, recognising that countries of the region have much to offer and to learn from one another.
