Women On A Mission Organisation (WOAMO) recently held a workshop to promote peace and entrepreneurship among women and young girls at New Life Centre Church in Masvingo.
WOAMO founder, Evangelist Romina Mazhara said the workshop was meant to discuss issues of peace and business management for women and girls.
Speaking at the event, Mazhara said women should not wait for miracles but strive to be successful, fight gender imbalances and aim for better positions in every sector.
"People have a problem in that they pray and relax; they want miracles to achieve everything instead of being innovative and work hard,” said Mazhara.
One of the guest speakers and entrepreneur, Angeline Mikiri encouraged women to partner with people who share the same goals, values and principles with them to maintain peace.
“You should partner with people with whom you share the same goals, values and principles to maintain peace,” said Mikiri
Another guest speaker and representative from the Ministry of Women Affairs Tichatonga Mugabe said women and girls should seek knowledge about business from established organisations or business training centres.
"Seek relevant information on business management from well-established organisations or business training centres for your business to be sustainable,” said Mugabe.
He also encouraged women to collaborate, support each other by sharing ideas on how to manage their businesses and create helpful linkages.
Mugabe said people should venture into businesses that they know best, compete against situations not against each other and raise capital through cooperative groups like Fushai.
“People turn to value salaries than business not knowing that business brings more money than salary,” he said.
Apostle Zivai Mapanzure of New Life Centre church urged people to supplement their business with prayers for there to be peace.
