The Voice Achievers Award is established in the Netherlands as project of The Voice magazine to recognize Africans and friends of Africa of outstanding achievement on a yearly basis. Since 2012, the award took a global outlook recognizing people outside of the Netherlands

The Voice Magazine is the First and the biggest African news Magazine published in The Netherlands. It was established in August 1999 to provide a voice for the African communities in The Netherlands and African people in the Diaspora at large. We have in every sense of commitment, engaged in this noble course over the years.
Over these years, we rose to a professional and moral call to unveil Africa to Europe and the rest of the world from the perspective of the African people. Being the first formal African News Magazine published in the Benelux region of Europe, we have reviewed the tremendous development and growth within Africa over the period.
The Editorial Board of the Magazine constituted an Award Committee that would under strict but objective appraisal; nominate distinguished Africans and friends of Africa, worthy of appreciation and Honour at every forthcoming “The Voice Achievers Award” in the Netherlands.

It is intended that this Award ceremony will be annual to encourage Africans and friends of Africa in various fields of human endeavours to do more and attain an outstanding status. We are in no way saying these people we have chosen are the best but they do have outstanding qualities that we are proud to present to the world.
“The Voice Achievers Award’ is programmed to be a spectacular media and mentoring event. The award is designed to serve to mentor people to aspire for excellence in all facets of human activities. It is a mixture of young and older minds being rewarded on the same platform.
This Award is unique because it offers not only recognition per excellence to the winners but also create an opportunity to meet other professionals and entrepreneurs from other communities in an interactive atmosphere to exchange new ideas.

We recognize governments, institutions, entrepreneurs as well as charities, social enterprises and those businesses that are making proven positive social or economic impact on Africans or a particular country in this contest.

The Bubbles bubbling me-Betty Makoni celebrating new book by Tantra Zawadi 

“Tantra-zawadi’s new collection is a must to read. It bubbles through every corner of the world. The symbolic bubble lofted in the air will leave many with multiple meanings of the beauty of life — a dose of inspiration — bringing the world closer to peace and hope. I am permanently inspired by Tantra-zawadi. She is not only a poet — she is my hero. Let history not leave out those who remained on the ground inspiring communities and breaking taboos whilst at the same time uniting the global village. I fully endorse this book and I ask every human being in the world to bubble their lives with this amazing great piece of art.
— Betty Makoni, Founder of the Girl Child Network and a 2009 Top Ten CNN Hero

“A work of love — what Tantra-zawadi makes — what she achieves through her art, envisioning, she says, the ‘unseen reality.’ A sublime soulfulness suffuses it, pungent like incense, subtle sinuous trans-formation shape-shifts as a genie might, rustled by a reedless wind.

Bubbles: One Conscious Breath by Tantra-zawadi available now onClick here

My youthfulness

My girlhood

My innocence

My imagination

All soaking soap in water

Forming just bubbles

Forming something to blow gently up

All bubbling with bubbles

 

My head high up

Blowing gently

Blowing up and up

Just gently lifting another woman up

Just gently lifting another girl up

As well lifting self-up

Softly blowing their heroism up

Softly cheering their up and even up

Till one, two, three and a hundred bubbles blown

Small ones blew out faster

Now with art to be gentle and make them bigger

Breathing my life air, giving the breath I take

 

All bubbling bubbles

Bubbling my inner bubbles

The dance with bubbles up and up

The song to all my bubbles up and up

The ceremony to count all up

My imagination as a girl

Would that one day not an atomic bomb

Not a day a mass weapon that blows

Just a peaceful bubble

Nothing tearing life

Just bubbles Tantra poetically twined

Bubbling round the world

Putting rockets and bombs to shame

Peace and bubbling like bubbles

All bubbling with bubbles
