It will bring together a diverse inspirational people working in different sectors, performers and artists propelling the development of young people.

Makata said ‘Go for Gold’ is a book with an aim to inspire, empower and dare the young and old into a life of purposely pursuing the uttermost best of their potential.
It was released on the May 24 2019 at Hotel Victoria in Blantyre.
Makata, whose organisation is advancing human rights, civic leadership, education and character development, said the book opens ideas and inspirations for one to pursue a life beyond the norm while minimizing living a life below the realities of what you can actually achieve.
“As every writer plans to publish anything, an article or a book, they have an idea of what they would love to achieve. As writers, we are creative, we bring into context ideas that we want to share to the world and I believe most of the times, our readers take the flow of the message we are giving out.
“In the same way, I wrote this book because I wanted to share my ideas, thoughts and inspirations regarding living a life that is out of normalcy,” she stressed.
Women Inspire was established in 2016 and Deliwe also founded Cleaners N More in November 2017. This is a company dedicated to serving the less advantaged and giving them a life of meaning.
