Funeral Service For Our Beloved Vweta Chadwick
Family and Friends of Vweta Chadwick are respectfully invited to attend Vweta's funeral service to say goodbye and pay last respects in the Funeral Service for the cherished memory of Vweta Chadwick (1988 – 2020)
Vweta Chadwick was a registered Social Worker with Social Care Wales. She dedicated the last 16 years of her life towards finding solutions to some of the most pertinent problems confronting women and girls in Africa, through Project ASHA.
ASHA is a girl's name of Swahili, Hindi, Sanskrit origin meaning "hope; life". That is why projectasha.org is an initiative dedicated to “Inspiring Hope & Transforming Lives.” If what you do inspires hope in others and transform their lives for the better, then you are ASHA (life and hope) to those you affect. Hence the hashtag #IAMASHA.
