Betty Makoni comes to the island….
Jill Hopkins wanted you & me to know about this ahead of time, to make plans – it’s pretty cool that Ms. Makoni (who has been named a CNN Hero) will be here on the island – here’s more:
Betty Makoni, poet, activist, radio host, founded Girl Child Network to provide a haven for young victims of abuse in her native country, Zimbabwe. GCN Worldwide is now in 8 countries, reaching over 300,00 girls. Betty’s life’s work is dedicated to empower girls…one girl at a time! Admission is free to this event on Saturday, January 15 · 1:30pm – 3:30pm at the Community Theatre, with donations to Girl Child Network appreciated.
