Makosi turns lemons into lemonade
She seems to have endless ideas. Television personality and former Big Brother UK housemate Makosi Musambasi has decided to show people how to take advantage of any situation at a conference themed “How to turn lemons into lemonade”.
The one-day conference dubbed “The Sisters Keepers Conference” takes place on October 25 at Celebration Centre.
The conference is aimed at creating female leaders and decorated local and regional speakers are billed to share strategies and testimonies at the conference.
The idea of the conference is to create a platform for women from diverse backgrounds to know that the sky is the limit and they can achieve their dreams and defy the patriarchal society. At least 400 women are expected to attend.
The Conference is being organised by Makosi — through her philanthropic organisation called Sisters Keepers Foundation .
It sources and distributes sanitary pads to under privileged communities and early this year the organisation donated a large consignment of pads to women in Tokwe-Mukosi and blankets to the maternity wing of Edith Opperman Clinic in Mbare
Makosi said: “The mission of this first annual conference of Be your sister’s keeper is to empower women to excel and reach their maximum potential through mentors within and outside the borders of Zimbabwe.”
The event is free to attend although pre- registration is required and women and men from all walks of life are encouraged to attend.
Some of the speakers to grace the conference include Harare Pastor Evan Mawarire from His Generation Church, Ignatius Munengwa a motivational speaker with the Dream Big Project, Tendai Garwe a prominent women’s rights activist with Womens Trust Zimbabwe and Nyari Mashayamombe the Founder of Tag A Life Foundation.
The Bible School graduate Makosi is also expected to fly in to the country and take to the podium at the conference.
This will be her maiden presentation in the country after she graduated from Winners Chapel Bible School in Nigeria.
Live entertainment will be provided by Prayesoul Mtamangira and Tinashe Makura. The Herald
