The official launch for Becky Foundation has been slated for Matobo district in Matabeleland South province of Zimbabwe on the 21st of August 2021 at an event where where the foundation will donate food hampers to the elderly and vulnerable girls who are also set to receive sanitary pads, a challenge which has seen many drop out of school.
Bekezela “Becky” Dube says she has worked so hard to be where she is and she thanks God for such a milestone achievement and that is why she has come up with an initiative where she would like to give back to the community starting with her rural community in Matobo and hopes to make this initiative an annual event were she will be going around different rural communities around Zimbabwe and South Africa giving to the less privileged.
The launch event will be held in the spirit of promoting indigenous traditional culture with a strict dress code of traditional wear and will have different traditional dance groups as part of the entertainment.
Becky Foundation remains hopeful that the Covid-19 measures put in place by the Government of Zimbabwe will have eased in order for the event to be successfully held.Mthabisi Tshuma
