  6. Thank you for this opportunity to win and for introducing me to Ziele.
    This is a very profound thought as far as I am concerned and one that seems to describe some of what Ziele is doing:
    “Empowering a life for tomorrow, not just sustaining a life for today”

  7. It means the fair treatment of women and helping them to stand on their own two feet. I really want to win Letters to Katie!!! 🙂

  8. Zimele Teaches people to be self sufficiant. People who are given a reason to believe they can make a better life for themselves…be self sufficiant and to rise above adversary! The devil likes to keep us weak and dependant….thus crushing our spirits. Compassion Int’l helps install teaching and skills to do this and more! Christ’s messengers in person!

  9. Means to stand on one’s own two feet. They are empowering them with the resources, skills, and support networks to help their families and build their communities. It gives them hope, shows that someone cares and helps them become a independent person.

  14. I like that Zimele is confronting the root causes of poverty and helping the women become self-sufficient. And I also support Compassion International. 🙂

  15. Wow what an awesome organization! This is the first time I have heard about it and I think it’s so fascinating that Zimele means to stand on your own two feet! It’s even cooler that this is their hope for Africa to be able to stand on their own feet! I think with them working with one woman at a time as well as community is the best way for an internal transformation with Jesus!
