The youth of Zimbabwe are an integral part of our vision at Tiritose. One of the very first initiatives we got underway had to involve the youth and students. The HeartBeat project focuses on developing the concept of servant leadership within the Zimbabwean youth. Wesley has visited several High Schools with a message to the young people, encouraging them not to waste a single heartbeat on negative thinking and acts. To kick-start the project, Wesley visited Makumbe High School, and held a motivational workshop for the pupils and after the talk, the local artist Probeatz performed.
Probeatz is an up and coming beatboxing artist and he is the perfect inspiration for the Zimbabwean students and youth of how positive thinking and personal passions will make you move forward and succeed. In November, Probeatz won the DreamStar talent contest, which verified the importance of continuously staying positive about your own future in order to achieve your goals.
Dance fitness instructors from the AfroFit programme at African Dance & Wellness taught a class of their TambaTamba workout to the students, which got their heartbeats going. In the spirit of collaboration, the HeartBeat Project is now a movement that other development experts are taking into high schools and putting their own spin on it, all with the aim of encouraging positive living.
