The Arts – Love, Hope, War Africa Tour
In support of the arts, Schweppes Zimbabwe Limited was the official water for the Love, Hope, War Africa Tour featuring Grammy nominated artist Da’ T.R.U.T.H., held on 22 February 2013. This formed part of a larger African tour that will be taking place and attracted youths, young adults from around Harare. This also set a platform for our own local Christian musicians to share a stage with the international artists that have inspired them to get into the arts.

The Happy Organisation
Bridging the Gap between the less privileged and more advantaged members of society has become second nature to Samantha Dika. With the Help of Schweppes Zimbabwe Limited, she was able to facilitate, revamp and host a fun day for orphans and widows at Happy Organisation in Zengeza. The Happy Organisation is a Zengeza based Welfare Centre (registered PVO 48/10) that cares for orphans, vulnerable children and widows in a number of ways including the provision of school fees, clothing and food. The women and children for whom the fun day was prepared had the time of their lives, enjoyed the music and dance, braai lunch and the Minute Maid refreshing juices. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Samanth R Dika
