Founded by Congolese Supermodel Lisette Mibo in London, Passion for Motherland (PFM) mission is to empower street children in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, specifically in its capital Kinshasa. This empowerment movement occurs through the provision of shelter, education, healthcare, rehabilitation and family mediation programmes, as well as economic tools such as micro-economic loans.
In its 4th-edition now, Passion for Motherland (PFM) is getting ready for its annual fundraising event this summer in the metropolitan city of London, on Saturday, 20th August 2016 – from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm – at the Holiday Inn Hotel Regents Park.
Moved by the urge to put people together, Founder Lisette Mibo and the entire team behind her is aiming to raise funds and build awareness around the cause of street children in the DR Congo. For the past three consecutive years, Supermodel Lisette Mibo aims to further support existing charities running empowering projects at grassroots level in her home-country. Changing the narratives, through charity, the Congolese Model turned Humanitarian will once again bring crowds together, help showcase new talents in the Fashion, and Cultural industries, help entertain the guests while raising money for the night.
The 4th edition of Passion for Motherland (PFM) will be a combination of a vibrant fashion show with live music, powerful poetry and a variety of specialist African stalls.
This year’s showcase is particularly important because all funds raised will be dedicated to supporting two projects:
– The initial construction of our very own shelter in Kinshasa, which will provide a safer environment for up to 300 street children over the next 3 years;
– Supporting Charité et Secours (CHARISECOURS), one of the organisations already helping street children on very limited budget.

The beach is easily accessible as bus stations are situated right in front of it. The buses go from the beach all the way to Port Louis from one side, or Grand Bay the other side.
MONT CHOISY BEACH
The public beach of Mont Choisy is situated between Pointe aux Cannoniers and Mont Choisy about 4km south west of Grand Baie and a little north east of Trou aux Biches beach.
The Mont Choisy beach is almost 3 kilometers in length with white sand bends around the coast creating a bay of beautiful turquoise water, lined with the casuarina trees which provide shade from the Mauritian summer sun.
During the week the beach is quite empty and only few locals and tourists visit the beach. On the weekends the beach is busy with Mauritians who come to spend their weekend at the beach with their friends and families.
This is why in case you are looking for a more quite and intimate beach atmosphere make sure to visit the beach during the weekdays and not during the weekends.
Many sports activities such as jogging, aerobic and waterskiing are available along the beach. There is even a nice football field just beside the beach where you can join the locals for a friendly football game.

Due to the very active boat and catamaran traffic inside the bay, the public beach has only a small area in which you can enter the water.
Although there is no doubt the beach is very nice and provides great view of both Grand Bay and the beautiful bay, you should take into account that due to all the boat traffic inside the bay, the water is probably not as clear as in the other beaches.

The south of Mauritius is considered to be a more virgin region of the Island providing wilder scenery.
The south of the Island is also known for its high sea cliffs and for the dramatic sights of the big waves crushing against the rocks. The reason for the big waves is the breaks in the coral reef at that area which allow the waves to reach all the way to the coast. This makes the sight of Mauritius south coastline very dramatic and picturesque.
The beaches on the Southern part of the island are not recommended for swimming. Usually the area is made up of quite high cliffs which most of the time directly fall into in the sea. Also, due to the fact the island is not protected at this area by the reef, the sea currents are very strong and can be dangerous.
The most popular beaches of the South region of Mauritius are: St Félix, Riviere des Galets and Gris Gris.
RIVIERE DES GALETS BEACH
The Riviere des Galets beach is located between Souillac and Bel Ombre. The beach is easily accessible when driving on the coast road heading east from Souillac.

Ilôt Sancho itself is very small and it is possible to do a complete circle of the island in several minutes. The walk on the island is quite nice, and you will have a great view on the south coast. The sea at Ilôt Sancho does not suit swimming.
ST. FELIX BEACH
The beach of St. Felix is located at the very south of the Island between the towns of Belle Ombre and Soulliac. The St. Felix is considered the most beautiful beach of the south of Mauritius (excluding the Le Morne peninsula).
St Felix is actually consisting of two small separated beaches of which the more eastern beach is a little more recommended to visit.
The beach itself is very beautiful, the sand is white and the sea offers mixtures of blues, from a light turquoise to a darker blue. Also, the many trees and greenery along the coastline provide a dramatic colors contrast to the beach and sea.

The Gris Gris beach is located at the South of Mauritius few kilometers south east of the village of Souillac. When driving on the coast road heading east from Souillac you will see a sign leading to the beach of Gris Gris.
Gris Gris beach offers the visitors a magnificent view from the top of its cliffs. This part of the island is not surrounded by coral reefs which causes the thick waves crash directly on the cliffs creating big splashes of water.
Beside the beach there is a small garden offering many quite spots for you to relax on one of the many benches while having a view of the sea, waves and rock cliffs. From the garden there is a way which brings you down to a small beach where you can admire the view of the sea from close.

The beach of Flic en Flac is located on the west coast of Mauritius between the village of Albion and Tamarin.
The Flic en Flac beach (which means “Free and Flat Land” in Dutch) is one of the longest beaches of Mauritius. The beach continues almost all the way to the village of Tamarin and as such is ideal for a great 1 hour beach walk.
The beach is great for bathing, swimming, snorkeling and for spending a day of relaxation with your partner, family and friends.
The beach of Flic en Flac has white sand and a turquoise blue lagoon. The beach is entirely protected by the coral reef and offers best swimming possibilities without strong sea currents.
When entering the sea be aware of the corals and especially of the sea urchin which are very common in this area. Stepping on a sea urchin can be very painful and this is why it is highly recommended to wear sandals or swimming shoes when entering the sea.
The highlights of Flic en Flac are the beautiful sunsets which fill the sky with range of colors. The sight of the sun disappearing in the sea with the remarkable scenery of the beach all around is quite breathtaking.
During weekdays the beach of Flic en Flac is quite empty while in the weekends the beach can become quite busy with many locals from the surrounding villages and towns.
The Tamarin Beach is situated at the bay of Tamarin between Flic en Flac and the village of Black River.
The sight of the Tamarin beach including also the Tamarain bay and the Black River mountain range in the background is quite impressive and makes the visit to Tamaran beach a worthwhile.
The sand of the Tamarin bay is yellowish and consists of soft sand mixed with little stones. The sea in this area is clear from corals, stones and sea urchins.
The river of Tamarin cuts the beach in two parts. You can pass from one part to the other by crossing the river by foot.
Furthermore the Tamarin bay has no coral reef protecting most of the bay. This is why when the sea if ruff outside the reef, also inside Tamarin Bay the sea may be little ruff and you should be aware of possible strong sea currents which can pull you out into the deep sea.
Also, due to the lack of coral reef protecting the bay on many occasions you will see waves reaching all the way to the beach.
All these make the Tamarin Bay a great beach for bathing in the sea, swimming (In the shallow water) and also for surfing and enjoying the medium height (about 1m) waves.
The Tamarin Beach is quite empty during the week while during the weekends many locals come to the beach with their families. On Friday and Saturday night, it is very popular to come and set-up camftire along the beach and the Tamarin bay.

Many of the Le Morne beaches are now the setting of a top class hotels, with that the public beach of Le Morne which is easily accessible from the main road, is a great beach in the same level of the other beaches in the area.
The public beach of Le Morne is a beautiful beach with white coral sand, very clear waters providing great visibility, trees scattered along the beach, and beautiful scenery with the Le Morne Mountain as an impressive background.
The Le Morne beach is particularly popular for windsurfing and kite surfers. The perfect wind conditions almost all year-round makes this beach one of the top kite and windsurfing destinations in the world.

Swimming at this beach is possible. However, you should be aware of all the surfers and kite surfers gliding and surfing along the beach.
The Le Morne beach can be quite busy during any day of the week. This mainly depends on the surfing conditions on the day. During weekends, the beach is busy with both locals and tourists coming to enjoy this beautiful beach, the ideal surfing conditions or watching the amazing surfing skills of the professional surfers visiting the beach.
GE’s DNA as a global company and industry leader is something that employees frequently cite as one of the factors attracting them to GE. Often, however, workers get bogged down with projects, not benefiting from the knowledge and research gathered by their colleagues that could be perfectly suited to enhancing their work. GE hopes to remedy this with the development of the GE Store.
GE’s subject matter expertise spans a variety of industries, from healthcare to transportation to oil and gas. Sometimes technologies or research developed by one sector can be applicable to another. For example, a device made to scan pipes for gunk build-up in an oil refinery may also be adaptable for scanning for corrosion in arteries in the healthcare application.
This birthed the idea of the GE Store, an exchange of knowledge, technology and tools across GE that enables the company to leap from industries to drive innovation, performance and outcomes across every business and geography while driving up speed and efficiency. The store is designed to encourage horizontal thinking teams and offers employees the opportunities to take and contribute to the store for the benefit of the over 200,000 employees across the globe.
“When I was in university studying engineering, I would often be given case study problem sets to solve. I would work out the problems and develop my own solutions. I would later meet with a study group who would offer other solutions I realised I’d never even considered,” said Santhosh Pillay, Localisation Leader, GE South Africa. “This, in essence, is what we hope for the GE Store. People coming together to share new solutions.”
Beyond the sharing of ideas, the GE Store is a great resource for enhancing customer service. Though customers may only interact with a local sales representative, they now have access to the wealth of knowledge and research housed in the GE network.
“Let’s say you’re working on a project in Mozambique. Without the GE Store, you would have to start from the beginning, duplicating processes that have already been developed,” said Jeff Sommer, General Manager, Global Supply Chain, Sub-Saharan Africa, at GE. “With the GE Store, you can see what contracts and projects have been completed for that type of project, and localise them to work in Mozambique.”
The GE Store is further bolstered by the opening of the Africa Innovation Centre in Johannesburg this past June. “The Innovation Centre is a physical manifestation of the GE Store,” continued Jeff. “It has learning and development facilities and the knowledge our staff builds there can be shared globally for GE’s benefit.”

The Organisation of African First Ladies Against HIV/AIDS (OAFLA) joined General Electric Company (GE) and Santa Clara University’s Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship on June 9 to advance social entrepreneurship to improve maternal and child health outcomes in sub-Saharan Africa.
The First Ladies of Africa were introduced to the healthymagination Mother & Child program, and participated in a roundtable panel that addressed how countries can engage social enterprises to meet U.N. Sustainable Development Goals and improve health care for mothers and children.
In March, GE and Miller Center partnered to create the healthymagination Mother & Child program which trains and mentors social entrepreneurs working on maternal and child health innovations in sub-Saharan Africa. The program combines GE healthcare product expertise with Miller Center’s proven Global Social Benefit Institute (GSBI) methodology for accelerating social enterprises.
“We are encouraged by the potential of social entrepreneurship, and the healthymagination program in particular, to help reduce maternal, newborn and child mortality rates in sub-Saharan Africa,” said Her Excellency Madam Monica Geingos, First Lady of the Republic of Namibia. “The well-being of the mother is key to ensuring the survival of the child, because children who lose their mothers are less likely to celebrate their second birthdays. The mission and goals of this GE and Miller Center project align perfectly with the mission and goals of OAFLA.”
“The healthymagination Mother & Child program is part of a multi-year global investment by GE to improve global health outcomes, foster regional economic development and develop local human capital,” said Robert Wells, Executive Director of GE’s healthymagination commitment. “We have always tried to stay close to new thinkers and partner with companies that have innovative ideas and move fast to solve major challenges of our time. We are proud to support the development of healthcare innovations and partner with the Miller Center and OAFLA to mentor the best minds to reach this goal.”
“We are delighted to partner with GE healthymagination, and to continue interaction with OAFLA, as we all work to apply social entrepreneurship to our important shared goals.”
“Miller Center has aligned our time-tested curriculum and successful track record in training, mentoring and accelerating social enterprises globally toward achieving as many of the 17 U.N. SDGs as possible—an approach we feel is the most direct path toward making a tangible difference in the lives of poor and underserved women and children in Africa and elsewhere,” said Thane Kreiner, Ph.D., Executive Director of Miller Center for Entrepreneurship. “We are delighted to partner with GE healthymagination, and to continue interaction with OAFLA, as we all work to apply social entrepreneurship to our important shared goals.”
Improving maternal and child health care in Africa, the world’s second-most populous continent, is a critical global health priority. Over 450 women in Africa die every day from pregnancy-related complications, and children in sub-Saharan Africa are more than 14 times more likely to die before the age of 5 than children in developed regions. Social entrepreneurship, with its dual focus on positive social outcomes and solid business practices, is uniquely suited to address these issues.
Social entrepreneurship is considered a crucial catalytic factor in alleviating many social and environmental ills because it provides solutions in local contexts that enrich the communities where they are located; is sustainable; invests in human capital; and delivers a replicable, business-focused model that helps organizations to scale.
Participants in the New York luncheon included: Her Excellency Mrs. Ban Soon-Taek, spouse of UN Secretary General; Her Excellency, Mrs. Monica Geingos, First Lady of the Republic of Namibia; Her Excellency, Aissata Issoufou Mahamadou, First Lady of the Republic of Niger; Her Excellency Mrs. Dominique Ouattara-Folloroux, First Lady of the Republic of Cote D’Ivoire; Deborah Elam, president of The GE Foundation and Chief Diversity Officer for GE; Carol Evans, founder and former CEO of Working Mother Media; Dr Stefan Peterson, Director and Chief of the Health Section, UNICEF, Thane Kreiner, Ph.D., Executive Director of Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship; Katherine Lucey, CEO and founder of Solar Sister; Jennifer Reingold, senior editor at Fortune magazine and Robert Wells, Executive Director for GE’s healthymagination commitment.

Two of Africa’s most famous musicians have released a song against the recent violence against foreigners in South Africa. The song “United We Stand” brings together Ladysmith Black Mambazo from South Africa and Malian singer Salif Keita.
Lyrics include the line “Africa is our home, make it a better place”.
At least seven people have died over a month of attacks on foreigners and foreign-owned property in South Africa.
Ladysmith Black Mambazo singer Sibongiseni Shabalala told the BBC he was trying to send the message that “Africa is for all of us”.
“You can’t say you don’t like the foreigners to stay in your country. This is not your country, this is our country.
“We are saying people should unite. If there’s problems, people should sit down and talk.
“One day your child will want to go and live in Mali, Nigeria or Ghana but because of your decision today it will be very difficult for your future generation to be able to do the same.”
The song is playing on South African radio from Friday, will be premiered on TV on Friday evening and will be released on iTunes on Monday.
