She said one of the organization’s aims is to see Malawians living a productive life so as they positively contribute towards the social-economic development of the country.
“We can not be talking of development of our country Malawi without bringing a mindset change among the Malawians,” said Chaponda.
Chaponda said it is now a high time people need new skills and knowledge that can help develop Malawi. She said this requires expertise, those people who have experience, skills, knowledge in development so as to impart these in them.
She said it is only through various conferences where these people who have skills and knowledge can easily interact with several people hence the decision to hold the Valentine’s dinner.
“It is important they learn something new from these expertise. We have invited expertise to attend the dinner so as they share what experiences, skills and knowledge they have on living a productive life,” says Chaponda.
She urged all Malawians who have a willing to learn new skills, experiences and knowledge on how one can live a productive life to come and attend the dinner in large numbers saying this will be a life changing event.
“It will be a life changing event. I don’t think one can come to this event and his or her life remain the same. The knowledge or a skill that one will get during this dinner is wealth millions if only can decide to take an action after the dinner,” said Chaponda.
In her remarks, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Fly High company Miliam Ngwira also encouraged all interested people to come to the conference dinner saying after the conference their lives will never be the same..
