Zimele + One Day's Wages
We are excited to share that Zimele USA and Zimele Wethu Foundation are partnering with One Day's Wages on a year long project to empower Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs) in KwaZulu Natal.
Over the next three months, our goal is to fully fund a $40,000 ODW matching grant which will allow us to serve 146 orphans & vulnerable children (ages 7-21) in the communities of Msinga, Swayimane and rural Durban. This year long program will cover topics of body awareness, understanding/ prevention/ intervention of abuse, as well as teaching Zulu culture, values and increasing self-esteem. OVCs will also gain work skills assistance, mentorship and integration into savings groups.
This project works alongside the Zimele women who currently care for these OVCs and will empower them to actively participate in ending the cycle of abuse in their communities and contribute to the ultimate outcome of creating sustainable communities where every member, including children, actively participate in social and economic transformation.
Please help us reach our goal of raising $40,000 for this project by making a tax-deductible donation today. For more information on this campaign, how you can get involved or to donate, please visit onedayswages-zimele.funraise.org.
As always, we thank you for your continued support and partnership of Zimele's work in South Africa.
