Introducing myself and my journal: Forward ever backward never

About Me:
My name is Tendayi Mazviwanza and i am a volunteer. I volunteered with a local non-governmental organisation called World Aid Foundation for three years. It was an important experience and eye-opener as i realise that old people in our country are being legged behind. We have come up with an initiative of a trust organisation which is catering the welfare of the elderly. The organisation is called Save the Elderly Trust (SET) and was registered on the 10th of March 2011. The current economy in our country is not good enough particularly to the seniors who can nolonger do/help for themselves.I hope my desire and dream will come true as a woman

My Passions:
Doing cherity work

My Challenges:
international network and support

My Vision for the Future:
To raise awareness of elderly within the society, proffessionals, stakeholders and the public at large

My Areas of Expertise:
Providing older people with a sense of well-being

seeking for your advices

Dear Fatima,

This is my greatest opportunity, i was struggling to make my dream true and i think this is the right time. I never knew there is this golden organisation with golden women which are there to support, save, help and raise us as women so that we can make a difference within our community. I am now 100% sure that our elderly people around will have something to smile. As i said we have just registered our trust organisation recently, and what we are looking for as of now are advices, tips and support so that this trust will not fail. Fatima, what we are doing as of now is giving few elderly people some food stuffs, clothing because we have very limited resources and we also want to help them with medication because when we visit them, the majority are complaining of severe pains in the joins, back and chest.

Be there to advice us, i am happy and may God bless you abandantly

Long live WorldPulse

Yours faithfully

Hie Fatima, I am being

Hie Fatima,

I am being touched with the way our elderly people are being treated particularly in my community of Chitungwiza, Harare. Some children are accusing their parents and grandparents of being witches. They leave their parents with nothing at all but yet these same parents are the ones who once struggled to send them to school and have decent jobs and houses. We are walking and getting in the community and try to comfort them and give them hope and love as they are missing all these.

As Save the trust in Zimbabwe, we have gained the impact because of this good work we are doing for our seniors and we still need to be connected to people and orgaisations who have the passion and desire for the elderly, who can help us in anyway possible.

We need your advices, tips and support so that we can serve our seniors and improve the quality of life for the elderly.

Yours faithfully,

Tendayi Mazviwanza
