Zimbabwean entrepreneur, philanthropist and venture capitalist, Karen Mutasa was Friday night recognised for her works at the Africa Giving Gala & Awards Event in Sandton, South Africa.

Mutasa runs a diverse portfolio of businesses and is extensively involved in charitable and community initiatives.

In her acceptance speech, Mutasa implored the delegates to touch lives positively, every day.

“It’s not about grand actions, but persistent, meaningful ethics. Share your resources, your knowledge and most importantly, your heart.

“In our journey through existence, we often seek meaning, purpose and direction. We yearn for guiding principles to navigate the complexities of life. It’s in these moments of reflection and introspection, that I like to frame life with these perspectives: the adventure of life is to learn, the purpose of life is to grow, the nature of life is to change, the challenge of life is to overcome, the essence of life is to care, the opportunity of life is to serve, the secret of life is to dare, the spice of life is to befriend, and the ultimate gift of life is to love,” Mutasa said.

Founded by South Africa-based Zimbabwean businessman, Conrad Mwanza, the Africa Giving Gala and Awards are a product of Africa Giving, an organisation which seeks create meaningful change in the lives of the less fortunate and make a positive impact on the African continent.

This is achieved through various philanthropic initiatives and partnerships, as well as recognising and honoring individuals who have dedicated themselves to making a difference in the lives of others.

The individuals, according to Mwanza, have demonstrated exceptional commitment and have achieved remarkable results in their respectve fields, through their stories of dedication and success, representing a shining example of the positive change individuals can create in their communites and beyond.
