Her provocative book series ignites the spirit of advocacy in readers, exploring empowerment, inspiration, bravery, peace of mind, forgiveness and hope. Through her writing, Marie-claire calls for advocacy to start from the home and at personal level.”It’s only in that way we can make peace with ourselves and learn how to accept and embrace our imperfections joyfully, completely and with pride”.

She is always very delighted to have the honor and opportunity to serve and to share a snippet of her story as a form of inspiration and empowerment. A story like hers, a girl who was once considered an outcast but is now getting much support with lots of men and women identifying with it. These are special nights to speak, reflect, fund raise, take, give, hug, network and make a difference. We must instill a new culture of love, forgiveness, peace and harmony in our lives, communities and families.

As a teenage mother and victim of bullying, Marie-claire was not fully aware that there were millions of other women and girls going through similar situations. Once she realized the staggering number of women and girls suffering from bullying and low self-esteem, her anger was evoked to fight and stop the menace, a crime that has cost the lives of so many and leave a handful with very little or no self worth. She didn’t feel emotionally scarred only for herself but for the millions of other girls who remain invisible in the rumbles of death and low self-esteem. She was determined to break her silence and inspire millions across the globe to do the same. Rejection did not enslave her nor kept her a victim of her past, thus rather than stand by and cry over it, she took a self empowerment journey and turned her scars into stars by establishing her organization and is carrying it with passion which is fast becoming an inspiration to many globally, with her messages of empowerment engraved in the pages of her books spreading throughout the world. She with her NGO is making sure the whole world joins her efforts. Her story shows survival, triumph and empowerment of an African girl who refuses to let her life be controlled by others.

Betty Makoni and Against Odds of Odds in publishing Fikelephi Jackson`s book-Testimony

  Briefly How Muzvare Betty Makoni assisted me-By Fikelephi Jackson 

I met Muzvare at an event organised by Women for Africa, I will never forget  our first meeting, before she even spoke on that day, I knew nothing about her. We clicked from the word go.
Then I heard her speak, I could not believe my ears as she spoke of her mother Mrs Rudo Fiona Nenguwo, who died as a result of Domestic violence, in front of her beloved daughter Muzvare who then became a mother to her siblings. I thought to myself her mother is like me, only difference is that I survived. I knew then that I had to speak to Muzvare about my book,, which then was still a script, I wanted to give her a hug as her speech moved me.
Yes, we exchanged numbers, I invited Betty to attend my Against All Odds Team, by then, my team felt that we were not going to meet our deadline with the publishers demands and book launch.
My heart was sinking as felt like a pregnant woman about to give birth and mid-wives telling me not to push, I could feel my waters breaking, it was time to give birth to Against All Odds…I Survived, nobody was listening. A miracle happened when Muzvare turned up towards the end of my team meeting, she met with everyone as they left with conclusion that Against All Odds was to be put on hold and a Mini book was to be launched instead.
Muzvare Betty Makoni, listened to me, I had tears in my eyes, she told me that I was like her mother. I was moved, and thankful at the same time that at last someone was hearing my cry. From then on Muzvare helped me, she became my Editor, my advisor, my mentor and my shoulder to cry on, she assisted in bringing out the right language I was to use. Infact the first 20 pages were thoroughly dealt by Muzvare.  She went on to give me names of Publishers who could help me. The rest is history, as we are doing our book tour ‘Against All Odds is transforming lives as we speak we are preparing for our trip to Malawi watch this space. Muzvare Betty Makoni will always be a part of Against All Odds…I Survived and a part of us as a family (the Jacksons)
Muzvare you are a gift to the world. I recommend her at any time to any nation, person, leader, king, queen, boy or girl.
We love and appreciate you
