Human rights advocate Mary Krug Ndlovu has dedicated close to 50 years of her life to the betterment of living standards for people in Zambia and Zimbabwe. She has lived in Africa since 1966, applying her distinguished academic achievements and experiences to making a significant difference in the daily lives of men, women, and children. For 11 years, she worked with the Legal Resources Foundation, training paralegals, developing training courses in human rights issues for police and prison officers, running legal workshops, and helping individuals, particularly women, with practical legal problems—all the while earning a law degree by correspondence. She established the Edward Ndlovu Library in 1992 in memory of her late husband, thereby employing local people and promoting literacy in a community with no access to books or resource materials. In honour of her leadership, she received an Old Girls Life Achievement Award from Havergal College in 2004.
