The High Tea is not only a delicious excuse for ladies to dress up, look good and share their stories over a wide range of teas and good food. But it is a conducive platform which unites like-minded women together for a common purpose, which is to empower, motivate and encourage harmony and interdependence among women from different nationalities, backgrounds and races.
Launched in Johannesburg, South Africa, in November 2015, The High Tea event was founded by two Zimbabwean women, Bonnie Chimanikire and Ntombizodwa Sibanda, who are passionate about woman empowerment. The two joined forces in a bid to change the narrative around women collaborating together in business and for the past years, they have succeeded in spearheading this agenda.
The High Tea targets women in business, aspiring female entrepreneurs, leading women in communities and careers and any woman looking to be among other women with hope to gain knowledge, unity, support and resources across a wide range of industries & interests.
The High Tea was recently hosted for the first time in Zimbabwe at the beautiful Organikks, with a picturesque view. This venue has a timeless beauty and is famously known for its mouthwatering delectables, which makes it a perfect place for a summer high tea.
The High Tea also has a fashion showcase from Zimbabwe’s finest fashion forward designers based locally and abroad.
Guests enjoy a sumptuous afternoon with a various selection of tea, coffees, juices, soft drinks and wines, accompanied by a delectable classic High Tea menu of savory and sweet finger foods, prepared by the in-house Chef.
Every detail was deliberately looked into with a Fashion showcase from Zimbabwe’s finest designers. Entertainment from Neo-Soul artist Prayersoul, Caroleen Masa, Tytan khokho and IAmLanga. A combination of these talented artistes made the show more than just a High Tea, but it THE High Tea, an event too good to be missed.
The High Tea also has a mentorship programme that will identify young deserving women from disadvantaged backgrounds and pair them with mentors from around the globe. They will be equipped with a smart phone and monthly data to connect with their mentors on a monthly basis for a duration of 6 months.
