John Griffiths attended to speak at the African Mothers Foundation event, and discussed the difference that Wales has made.
The Counsel General said:
"Wales is a small country, but we recognise our moral duties as a global citizen and want to contribute to international development and social justice worldwide.
"This is why the Welsh Assembly Government is so proud of its Wales for Africa programme and the projects and organisations we support – such as the African Mothers Foundation.
"It is through projects like this that we can make a real, tangible difference."
Mr Griffiths was speaking at an event held at Cardiff County Hall on Friday evening.
The African Mothers Foundation International (AMFI) started in 2008 when the Founder and Director, Bekezela (Becky) Nsingo visited a rural area in Zimbabwe. She was affected by the plight of the Zimbabwean women and young girls, especially widows, and children orphaned by HIV/AIDS.
AMFI approached Wales Africa Community Links, a Wales for Africa Programme funded scheme, and developed a link between communities in Wales and Africa. Women from both communities are learning skills from each other.
The charity organised the event on the weekend to fundraise for their projects of building a school, maternity ward, and a community library in Zimbabwe.
The event also included a traditional African clothing catwalk show, comedy, poetry and a charity raffle with prizes including a signed book from the First Minister of Wales.
