Gugu approached Rufaro Kangai, the Country Director of ICRI's office in Harare. Rufaro, a Zimbabwean who had previously worked in ICRI's headquarters in California, moved back to Harare in 2007 to open ICRI's office there. Rufaro was impressed by Gugu's commitment and leadership, and realized that there was a critical need for the type of program Gugu had envisioned. Moreover, she realized that partering with Gugu was very much in "the ICRI way"- being invited to collaborate on a project with a local leader deeply connected to the community to be served.

Gugu soon joined the staff of ICRI's Zimbabwe office, and with Rufaro developed the Support for Women and Girls Project. The project offers an array of intensive services to young women, including support groups, individual counseling, educational workshops, tutoring, and vocational training. Young women were soon flocking to the "safe space" at ICRI's Harare office, and taking part in popular slumber parties that Rufaro and Gugu hosted to allow the young women "the opportunity to just be with each other and to just be themselves in a fun and supportive environment. Although the program has a particular focus on young women who are HIV-positive and young women who have endured sexual assault, both Rufaro and Gugu felt it was important to open the program up to any young woman in need of intensive advocacy and support.
