Nyasha GwatidzoNyasha started her social entrepreneurial journey with a £800 redundancy package and an abundant passion for children. She was a founder and campaigner for introducing independent children’s homes and fostering agencies to work in partnership with the public sector.

As a black African woman, she faced discrimination in her journey but sheer determination and passion saw her develop a successful social enterprise. Her book is full of tips she has learned over this period and she hopes it will inspire you to do whatever you are determined to do, guided by your own passion.
