Zimele Community Programs
Our approach involves an intensive process that secures a safe environment for healthy growth enabling women to rise above poverty. We provide training in business skills such as product design, marketing, bookkeeping and basic financial management. By building these entrepreneurial skills, communities will be able to sustain independent businesses.
More importantly, we raise up women leaders who make key decisions for their communities advocating within local governing bodies. Change and social reforms such as access to health care, better education and employment opportunities positively affect the lives of their communities.
Our main focus is to empower and build up women to become self-reliant through Self-Help Groups, Cluster Level Associations and Federations. By working together in community with other women, they also receive vital support in improving their lives.
