Grace Sibanda started a non-profit organisation that seeks to empower the more vulnerable children in our communities through education, entrepreneurship and skills development. By creating opportunities such as spelling bees, leadership programmes and the planned establishment of a community centre, the Window of Heaven Foundation seeks to create an environment that nurtures and encourages children to dream and achieve more. In just a few years, Sibanda learnt much about managing organisational structures to best achieve her goals. These lessons have taught her that a strong work ethic is a key factor in success and, especially in the volunteer space, can make or break a project. In her growing capacity as a social entrepreneur, and along with a strong connection to God, Sibanda’s life centres on peace, purpose and unconditional love for others. With these as the core tenets for living and working, she believes we can all achieve unlimited focus and happiness.
Love what you do, stick to your own roots, and love and appreciate your culture.
