Sammy Garikai Chayikosa a graduate majoring in Legal Studies from AIU- has received the registered version of the Zimbabwe Cultural Heritage Trust for work done in his cultural promotion organization.



Here you can learn more about the work of his organization:



“The idea to form and register the organization came from the fact that I have been an artist since 1974. I am a good performer of traditional Mbira and the Mbira instrument is played at important cultural events including the installation of a chief and rain making ceremonies according to the Shona culture of Zimbabwe. 

The instrument is also played when the living want to invite the spirits of ancestors for guidance and blessings- and the process involves brewing traditional beer and food. However- I have observed that our Shona culture is slowly being negated as a result of intergenerational gaps that my Organization is trying to bridge- through the promotion of cultural practices- including the arts. It is also necessary to preserve heritage sites for the sake of humanity. Additionally- indigenous knowledge- which is fundamental to building resilient communities and sustainable development- must be harnessed for the good of humanity. It is envisaged to promote traditional food production and consumption at all levels in Zimbabwe- as traditional foods have medicinal properties to control and treat health problems such as blood pressure and diabetes. It should be noted that peoples without culture are a great danger to themselves and to the global village. 


The rule of law and good governance can only be realized among cultured people and communities. Through music- dance- storytelling- etc.- negative practices such as gender-based violence and child abuse can be eliminated at the domestic- community- national and global levels. The Organization will work to transform systems to be responsive to the needs of humanity- based on the principles of natural law. The human-centered development approach is the Organization’s theory of change.”  -Sammy Garikai Chayikosa
