The 17th of February 2014 is a day to remember: many years of hard work from the whole team has finally culminated in the official launch of the Future of Hope foundation in Zimbabwe, the home country of Chido Govera. This is a very special moment for her and marks a very important stepping stone in the process of making her personal dream come true. This moment also illustrates her strong will, passion and dedication to her vision of helping other orphans.
Future of Hope trustee Philip Bohwasi will open the ceremony welcoming the participants and providing a program overview. This will be followed by a welcome speech by Chido. They will be followed by guest speaker Prof. Gunter Pauli – the founder of the ZERI foundation and the blue economy. We are also proud to welcome Mrs. Stella Dongo who is governor of the Rotary district 9210 for Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique.
The day’s program also includes remarks by Marc Plaisier and Jos Verlinden, strong supporters of the Future of Hope; an introduction to the CosmoGolem project by Koen Vanmechelen (the artist and designer of the CosmoGolem); and closing remarks by Future of Hope beneficiary and trustee Dumisani Kutywayo.
