Radio Interview & Online Article

Against All Odds Still Standing’ to launch in the UK soon


Reproduced here with permission.       Interviewed by Pastor Phillip Kamundi on Pamtengo Radio.

Article by Ian Carter Phiri of Pamtengo Radio 

The Proprietor of Fikelephi Jackson Ministries (FJM) and author of ‘Against All Odds I survived’ has announced her plans to officially launch her UK based charitable Organisation “Against All Odds Still Standing” (AOS) aimed at raising awareness about domestic violence against all men and women by building a safe haven where women could receive healing and practical advice in order to move forward in their lives.

The AOS UK Charity launch expected to attract a cross – section of people from all walks of life is scheduled to take place at the Hilton London Docklands Riverside hotel in London from 6pm to midnight on April 26, 2014.

The event will host a couple of prominent guest speakers but also attractions like Mini Fashion Show by the African beauty pageants and a live musical performance by a resident Malawian artist besides a performance by Shanky & Bella. The launch also coincides with the first anniversary celebration of Mrs Fikelephi Jackson’s own book ‘Against All Odds I survived’ which among other issues conveys a message of hope, restoration, liberty, forgiveness and redemption.

Speaking in an exclusive interview to Pamtengo radio at New Wine Church in Woolwich, London recently, Mrs Fikelephi Jackson said her vision was to see peoples lives healed and restored by assisting them to discover their true purpose adding: “Raising awareness about domestic violence against all men and women the World over and beyond is my organisation’s top priority.”

She added that her goal was to provide insight and guidance to anyone in need by taking the message of hope to the four corners of the World especially in places where people were oppressed, said the activist.
“I invite you to take some time to learn about my journey from despair to fulfilment in my personal life and how the lessons I have learnt can help others triumph over pain and adversity” said Mrs Jackson, in a very moving testimony flanked by her husband, Mr Colin Jackson.

She also pointed out that building a safe haven where women could receive healing as well as practical advice on how to move forward in their lives was what her Organisation stood for.

On another development, Mrs Jackson also revealed that her charitable Organisation ‘Against All Odds Still Standing’ was already working with the Malawi government such that it was in the process of registering her Charity in Malawi as well.

Asked why she chose Malawi in particular as her next destination for her project, Mrs Jackson said she was convinced beyond reasonable doubt that Malawians had acknowledged respect for women by electing a woman president saying: “the fact that you have elected or nominated a woman leader tells me that Malawian men and women acknowledge that us women do carry something worth bringing on the table. And that for me is such a big thing about Malawi.”

She added: “You guys are so blessed beyond. And if there are any Malawians listening out there, you guys are such beautiful people and you have a woman president who is also so much inspirational to so many young girls and young women.”

The activist however said whilst she appreciates and credits the numerous Non Governmental Organisations (NGO’s ) already operating in Malawi, she believes there was still yet nothing in place that was concrete to protect the lives of young girls and women against abuse occurrences.

Fikelephi, fondly known by her peers as ‘Mrs Jackson’ has a strong connection with God and strives to share the wisdom and peace that this relationship brings her with others. As such as an author, mentor and speaker, Mrs Jackson says she offers coaching sessions to many women who have been affected by physical and emotional abuse in the past.

“If I overcame it, I will do all I can to support others overcome it too.” declares Mrs Jackson whose book ‘Against All Odds I survived’ is already poising a big impact and touching the hearts of many women around the world today.

In her remarks, Veteran activist in the field of gender and expert adviser to UK’s Foreign Secretary, William Hague, Betty Makoni who also indorsed Mrs Jackson’s book ‘Against All Odds I survived ‘said Fikelephi was a woman of strength, one that the World should reckon with.

As quoted in Fikelephi’s book Makoni describes Mrs Jackson as the invincible extraordinary woman whose story represents yet another forgotten generation of women who have waged and continues to wage war against domestic violence.

Among other issues projected in this book Mrs Jackson, views her book as the birthing room to where she underwent a wondrous transformation from a dark place to make an entrance for a great light that she is now spreading all over the World today. Mrs Jackson has made it her mission therefore to lift many women out of the same dark pit she was in a number of years way back.

Inspiring Interview with Fikelephi Jackson

Inspiring Blog Interview with Published Author Fikelephi Jackson By Bertha Mukodzani

Bertha Mukodzani’s blog ). 

As well as entertain and inform, I aim to inspire on my blog and I had the pleasure of interviewing Fikelephi Jackson, author of the book Against All Odds (I Survived) whose work I find inspiring. Fikelephi is my kind of lady- strong, determined, God-fearing and doesn’t let any life’s challenges get in her way and her autobiography Against All Odds (I survived) as well as her life now is testimony of that. I hope her story will will leave you just as inspired as I was.
Thank you Fikelephi for joining me, I’m very honoured to have this opportunity to speak with you.
Thank you for having me on your blog!
Fikelephi could you tell us a bit about your book Against All Odds (I survived).
Against All Odds is based on my true story. An Autobiography. The story carries a message of Hope, Restoration, Forgiveness and Redemption. Against All Odds… I Survived also brings awareness on Domestic Violence.

What inspired you to write this book?
 As a survivor of so many odds (challenges) in my life, I have come to realise, that everything that happened to me was for a reason. Seeing other people going through similar situations like I did, this provoked my spirit and inspired me to write the book. In order to empower, to release hundreds of people from the guilt, the shame, the whole package and bring about a message of hope and liberty.
How did find the writing experience of writing this book? Were there any challenges along the way? If any what made you perservere to the end?
 Honestly, sometimes it was very emotional, as I had to revisit most of the painful events, also challenging, and then inspiring towards the end of the book as the story unfold, i.e. my turn around. Yes, I did find it very challenging at times, thank God, I have a very supportive husband and strong family members. I also had my team (Against All Odds team) who kept encouraging me to keep going as so many lives depended on this book ‘Against All Odds…I Survived’ not to mention my mentees, whose lives have been inspired, empowered and provoked through my mentorship. They, for years have been begging me to finish writing the book so that many people would benefit.
Can we expect any more books from you Fikelephi?
Yes, as a matter of fact, how Against All Odds…. I Survived ends, it’s just after my 22 year old daughter passed away tragically. The next book will be mostly about my daughter and how I overcome grief.
Where can people buy your book?
They can buy the book from the following outlets:
Nook, tba, only after next week,
New Wine International Book Shop, Gateway House, John Wilson Street, Woolwich, London, SE18 6QQ.
Who is your favourite author and why?
 Mike Murdock, Danielle Steele
And your favourite book.
The Unforgettable Woman (Ruth) by Mike Murdock
Before we conclude this interview could you give some words of encouragement to those who are contemplating on writing a book or embarking on some project which they feel may be a mountainous undertaking.
Well, firstly you need to consider why you want to embark into a project or write a book. Secondly, consider who your audience is. Thirdly, do your research on the subject you want to write about, i.e. has anyone else written about it and what would be different from yours. Finally, ensure you have a plan, strategy and time scales etc.
Well, you’ve heard the lady’s advice. Thank you very much Fikelephi for joining me today. It’s been a pleasure speaking with you. I wish you all the best in your future projects.
Thank you again for having me on your blog Bertha.Find out more about Fikelephi’ s servicves contact her by or e mail on

An Afternoon With Fikelephi @ Downham Library

The book tour now took on another level on Thursday, 18th July, which had a real meaning for Fikelephi because Lewisham is where she have spent most of her time whilst living in London.  After a introduction from Alan at Lewisham Libraries,  the Deputy Mayor of Lewisham, Cllr. Alan Smith gave an insightful summary of the very real concerns of DV and how he have found it in relation to this reading of Fikelephi’s Against All Odds. Fikelephi then went on to shared some fond memories of times she spend living in Lewisham.  Some of the happening, which are mentioned in her book as this is where some to the events took place.  The audience were captivated as she shared more about her struggles and successes through her speaking.

Using the illustration of Lazarus, Fikelephi, likened herself as coming forth from the dead, where there was no hope, and especially after three days of being laid to rest, everyone else had given up all hope, yet Lazarus was risen up again to life.   Against the odds of poverty, abuse and grief Fikelephi also have arisen.  She later took questions after signing her new book.

In attendance were  local organisations that were represented also, which turned out to be a great net-working opportunity.

The book itself brings out the key features around the mission statement for Fikelephi’s vision, which is a message of hope and restoration. It is based on the true story of Fikelephi’s life, in which she reminds us, the odds were stacked against her.  Fikelephi went on to tell the audience that these odds; were against poverty, war and abuse.  Yet despite all these she succeeds against the odds.  The crowning victory is after some ten years of battle, was when she rejoined her children.  In fact, one gets the sense that indeed, Fikelephi manages not only to survive, but to thrive against all odds.
