Nyasha Njela

Head of Fundraising for Feenix, South Africa

After spending 6 years working in retail banking in her native country Zimbabwe, Nyasha moved to South Africa with her family. Having worked as a personal banker to priority clients during her time in retail banking, customer relations has been at the core of her work life, which transitioned to non-profit humanitarian work when she started working for Doctors Without Borders (MSF) South Africa in the fundraising department. From the moment that she started her fundraising career she has not looked back and strongly believes in the power of community coming together for a bigger social purpose. With almost a decade of experience in fundraising, Nyasha sits on the Steering Committee for Women in Philanthropy South Africa and is the Resource Mobilisation Manager at Feenix.
