Benasho, daughter give back to the vulnerable
CANCER activist and supermodel, Sphiwe Benasho, has shared business tips requiring minimal capital with vulnerable women and girls drawn from 12 zones of Kapwepwe Ward 25 in Lusaka’s Matero Township.
Ms Benasho who is an entrepreneur found time to interact with some vulnerable women and girls whom she presented with clothes and shoes during a come together International Women’s Day commemoration at the weekend.
The main agenda of the meeting was to identify female led business ventures which required small capital ahead of the introduction of the Natwafwane Fund in the ward under the Kapwepwe Natwafwane Project.
Ms Benasho renowned for her energetic cancer activism such as the Pink Ribbon Walk encouraged the women not to give up on their dreams or look down on themselves as there was still hope and a chance to make it in life.
She said one cannot change the whole world but that one can make a difference in someone’s life.
‘‘My daughter and I decided to give back to the community. We donated beds, chitenges, clothes, shoes and toys,’’ she said.
And Patriotic Front Councillor, Mwamba Salubusa said it was humbling to see Ms Benasho’s daughter, Nozhipo donate some of her clothes and school bags to her new found friends in the ward.
Mr Salubusa has called on the corporate world and well-wishers to be part of the Natwafwane Project by extending their helping hand to the vulnerable in the community.
