I am Benedito (Beny) Maunze, a Mozambican social activist and professional tour guide, born in Vilankulo and living in Inhambane Town.
I Started tour guiding as hobby in earlier 2009 and become professional in 2017.
One year later, In 2010, I attended African Impact English lessons and later served the same organization as school translator in 2011.
From 2012 to 2015 I was trained and served Sasol Petroleum International as junior process controller artisan in live/Natural gas processing plant, Temane.
In 2016 I started studying tourist information in Eduardo Mondlane University (ESHTI), course which I am still busy with, currently.
I can imagine that by now you are asking yourself “how can a chemical operator go for a tourism course? As nothing one has to do with another". Well, the answer is “Smile Mozambique”.
I strongly believe that each and every one of us when is born, is given two unconditional and blessed gifts. One (1) - Is life, which we must everyday be grateful for. And Two (2) is our imagination, which I will further call “dreams”, this brings happiness and if we don’t follow it, we can make as much money as we can or be the most prayers ever, but still be miserable for the rest of our lives, because we will be feeding the outside forces while we are being killed by inside spirit.
In this long journey called life I learned that anything you do for you, when you die you take it with you but everything you do for others when you die you leave it with them. So, my purpose in life is to bring smile in people’s life and help them writing their own books. Because I believe that smile is love, love is care and care is sharing. For me, smile is the beginning of everything, without it life wouldn’t make any sense.
