“This 10th anniversary is a very significant milestone,” says Chipo Mkandla with ZimExpo.” For 3 days we have a unique opportunity to bring people together from all over the world to network, discuss issues that are important to us and come up with plans and strategies that will also have an impact in Zimbabwe.” Patric Gwenzi, ZimExpo Director based in England also added, “This year we are expecting over 2000 guests to come and view over 30 exhibit booths, including 10 from Zimbabwe. We are expecting our biggest and best Expo ever. So prepare to come to Leicester for the event. Arrangements have been made with local hotels to accommodate delegates and out of towners so pleases take a look at http://www.zimexpo.com for formal details.”
Also gracing Miss Zimbabwe UK 2011 will be ZimExpo UK partner Maranatha Shelter Movement, a registered charity organization, founded by Pastor George and Mrs. Moyo of Breakthrough Ministries Zimbabwe. Maranatha Shelter caters to the less privileged mainly orphans and is recognized in the Sanyati area. Maranatha Shelter UK Movement is run by a team of delegates such as Christmas Darlington Jambwa, Togarasei Mungwadzi, Trymore Mahachi, Constance Chisamba, DJ Runnie and led by the young and hardworking Miss Zimbabwe UK 2010 1st Princess , model and actress Tafadzwa Jambwa. She said, "It all started from beauty pageants where I realized beauty actually comes from within, I am inspired by the words of Mother Teresa, "Give a little with a big heart". Because of these words and the works of Mother Teresa, I was challenged to do something, hence I now lead the Maranatha Shelter Movement whose aim is to gain sponsorship, partnership and hold fundraisers, all in the hope of raising orphan awareness worldwide so that they can be acknowledged by the society." If any individuals or organizations are inspired to support in any way or have any questions, come to the ZimExpo UK 2011 or contact maranathashelter@
