A Harare based organisation, EntrePeers will this March host a mental health awareness seminar event aimed at helping entrepreneurs.
Being aware that entrepreneurs can suffer from stress and depression among other things, EntrePeers co-founder Privilege Shumbamhini said that the event will help tackle these challenges.
Shumbamhini said, “We are focusing on imparting knowledge on four pillars of wealth to our members, which are mainly, Financial wealth, Social wealth, Time Wealth and Health wealth. Our next event is mainly focused on health wealth. We realised that entrepreneurs go through a lot on their journey to achieve their goals. We understand they can suffer from stress ,depression, burnout and loneliness .We are creating a platform that allows them to talk about these things without feeling ashamed and providing tips on how to be result oriented despite the challenges.”
The event will be graced by three star speakers who are Sebastián Zuze, Sandra Ndoro and Mabel Nyamurowa.
Shumbamhini also said that the day will have an array of networking activities including wine tasting.
She said, “We have invited zim champion sommelier and chef Takura Makadzange who will be showcasing his winetasting skills.”
The event will be held at Flo’s Garden on March 4, 2022 at number 21 Woodhall Drive in Harare. A registration fee of US$30 will be paid.
EntrePeers was launched on 28 January 2022, under the theme fostering your social capital. It’s main aim is to bring entrepreneurs together in a platform where they can network and freely share ideas for growth.
