Zakale is the Swahili word for what has been thrown away being made new again.
John Mucheru is a living example of this word. As a young man, John says he engaged in activities that were not pleasing to God. After turning his life over to the Lord, however, he discovered that he possessed a gift in art and handcrafts.
So John received a loan and used his creative skills to open a business, Zakale Creations. Watch the video below to see how he now uses his business to change the lives of at-risk youth.
Today is the first-ever Giving Tuesday, a chance to give back to people in need after the holiday shopping craze of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Today, you can make a donation to World Vision’s Maximum Impact Fund to help families all over the world, and receive the amazing handmade beaded ornaments you see in this video.
