My name is Tina Tendai Makuku Makaya an African Themed Jewelry designer based in Beijing. Founder of Chariots-Lionbay and People at Heart foundation. Chariots was created in 2016 after I realized the need to bring an awareness to the world about our African culture and heritage as well as bringing women together and share the love of God. Through my foundation we work to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged children and women through offering educational programs, building early childhood centers and empowerment programs as well as providing a support system for women entrepreneurs.
We aim at creating an equal opportunity for marginalized women and children in my community in Zimbabwe and the world at large. I’m a firm believer of building our country and community brick by brick. This means that it does not matter your class or financial status you can start helping the next person in different ways. We have managed to build an Early Childhood Education Center. We have also started women projects that assist marginalized women in starting their own business and taking care of their families. We have hosted several empowerment workshops and conferences.
I have worked in several organizations including FedEx International and have graduated with a Higher National Diploma in Purchasing & Materials Management. I have worked with several Non-Profit Organization such as W.O.V International.
