Covenant World Relief partners with Zimele South Africa in empowering marginalized women in Umsinga which is in the Umzinyathi District. The members of this community have launched two different cluster communities with about 10 members per group. Zimele has helped to form nine self-help groups (SHGs) and train the cluster members to build awareness about social and economic realities in their community. These women have been engaged and are starting to look into their own community’s needs and have recognized projects to improve and serve the community.

The women cleaned her home, fetched wood and brought her water from the river. These woman assist her with the essentials like cooking, bathing, and cleaning her home. The women are empowered by seeing the improvement in their community as they continue to bring awareness and training.
