093 Nyasha Gwatidzo – How I built a multi million £ business from my kitchen table

Our guest this week:

Nyasha Gwatidzo


Nyasha started her social entrepreneurial journey with a £800 redundancy package and abundant passion for children. She was a founder and campaigner for introducing independent children’s homes and fostering agencies to work in partnership with the public sector.


As a black African woman, she faced discrimination in her journey but sheer determination and passion saw her develop a successful social enterprise.


Nyasha is a founder and executive director of Banya Family Placement Agency (an independent fostering agency).


Over the past twenty years she has won and been a finalist of many business awards, varying from social enterprise of the year to businesswoman of the year for her work. She has also won charity awards for Vana Trust, a children’s charity she founded.
