Convent Awarded at Model United Nations Conference

From the afternoon of Friday, 26th of July to the 27th of July, 2019, three Convent Model United Nations (COMUN) ladies managed to attend the Hellenic Model United Nations’ (HAMUN) first big conference.

Our Deputy Secretary-General Tanyaradzwa Gwenhure along with two dedicated COMUN senior members, Nicola Faduku and Tapiwa Kainga were accompanied by Miss Muza to the much anticipated MUN conference under the theme ‘Crossover Paths’. We were split up into three different commissions—General Assembly, Human Rights Council and Security Council.

Throughout the duration of the conference, we had in depth debates under an approval panel that analyzed the quality of our resolutions. We explored global issues such as Modern Day Slavery in Libya, China’s Prison Camps for Uyghur Muslims and the Gender Pay Gap.

The theme ‘Crossover Paths’ prompted us to recall historical events that have defined this present generation. The presence of well-read and passionate students eager for positive change from some of Zimbabwe’s most elite schools, reminded us that we are too privileged to do the small things in life. 

Because of such Model United Nations Conferences, we are always reminded to renew our commitment in finding solutions to the problems being faced by people beyond the Zimbabwean borders. This conference was also a rare opportunity to fuse lessons we gain from Debate Sessions, Current Affairs Forums as well as our Public Speaking skills.

Collectively, Nicola Faduku and Tanyardzwa Gwenhure were awarded a ‘Best Delegate’ and an ‘Honorable Mention’ Certificate for their qualitative research and outstanding participation in the General Assembly and the Human Rights Council, respectively.

We hope to see more Convent ladies actively participate in these conferences and raise the Convent Model United Nations flag high.
