The Inspiration behind Womandla

Melinda Gates, a TIME magazine 100 honoree, says she wants to make investments in health and technology to help unlock potential for women around the world.

I watch the Melinda Gate’s Foundation developments incessantly and adopt their strategies as a guideline for my plan. The vision and the work she does, as mentioned in this video, encourages me on my journey.

The internet is such a wonderful tool when it comes to introducing us to topics and people that would otherwise be almost impossible to meet in one’s lifetime.

Whether Womandla will be an organisation that will be likened to Gates’ or not, I am working hard at establishing a legacy  for the next generation. For me, it isn’t about the accolades but the significant difference we will be making in the life of the young, African woman.

I’m taking the baton and responsibility for our continent and it’s young leaders because the future is African and I’d like to be a great part of it!

A prayer to push…

Disturb us, Lord, when
We are too well pleased with ourselves,

When our dreams have come true

Because we have dreamed too little,

When we arrived safely

Because we sailed too close to the shore.
Disturb us, Lord, when
With the abundance of things we possess

We have lost our thirst

For the waters of life;

Having fallen in love with life,

We have ceased to dream of eternity

And in our efforts to build a new earth,

We have allowed our vision

Of the new Heaven to dim.
Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,
To venture on wider seas

Where storms will show your mastery;

Where losing sight of land,

We shall find the stars.
We ask You to push back
The horizons of our hopes;

And to push into the future

In strength, courage, hope, and love.
