Fifty Global Awards make Muzvare Betty Makoni the most honoured woman globally so far

By Nicole-Just a friend
It is not meant to start a competition at all. It is said that when you do charitable works you give it all emotionally and physically.However, the world does not just watch when someone does good, the world rewards, encourages and supports. The good global villages gives constructive criticism when needed. The life of Muzvare Betty Makoni is worth talking about and its worth emulating. She told me every award she received was a unique experience to get more support in order to support other girls.All awards money was used to build four Girls Empowerment Villages in Zimbabwe.Before Muzvare built her home, she poured over $200 000 of award money and post award donations into eduaction of girls many of who are now top professional women leaders. The story which is all contained in her Autobiography, Never Again is a must to read. Congratulations Muzvare and please share my post with many out there that you worked and got rewarded but you took all rewards to invest in marginalised girls. Look where they are now and something I personally would never do. I am inspired.
