MEET MUTSA

Received beautiful email in my inbox today from a young lady today, working really hard to make a difference. I so admire people like that. I think her words say it best, so I’ll share what she said:

In 2010 I started a platform called Meet Mutsa. I was set on actively doing something to change the state of the HIV pandemic especially in Africa and I wanted to gear other people up to do the same in a creative, fun and refreshing way. The pandemic is often portrayed as a hopeless situation and I don’t believe it is at all. It can end.

I raised money and in 2011 I went out to Zambia for four months and trained fifteen young people to be peer educators then they created their own project and did outreach work in neighboring villages; speaking and educating their peers.
I need to get back out to Zambia this year to continue this work. I’m hosting a Danceathon in London and New York on Saturday 9th February I thought this would be a fun way to get people involved and fundraising. Each person who registers pledges to raise £30/$50 in sponsorship then on the 9th they’ll dance a mixture of African, Zumba and Street Dance for three hours.


Doing something great, while dancing for 3 hours,not to mention the mega calories burned. If I didn’t have a prior commitment, I would so be there. There’s tons more info, pictures etc about the good work she’s been doing right here.
