I heard this woman speak last week at a RESULTS event in Victoria, and have been moved to action.
Betty Makoni is the founder of the Girl child network, which is supporting 45,000 child rape survivors in Zimbabwe
Watch the video: http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/living/2009/06/04/cnnheroes.betty.makoni.profile.cnn and if you are moved, please read on.
She has been chosen as one of the top ten CNN heroes for 2009. Voting is now taking place and the winner will be announced on November 26th. We can make her number one and not only give the girls in Zimbabwe a voice; but support her work with the $100,000 prize. Vote as many times as you like before November 19th at: http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/cnn.heroes/vote/
