Zoë-Life is a professional and innovative South African Capacity Building and Development organization, working in the field of Public Health and Social Transformation. The Zoe-Life team is made up of a dedicated and dynamic group of passionate professionals working alongside vulnerable people and communities to innovate new solutions to old problems.
Our goal is to transform options available to children, vulnerable families and communities that have been affected by disease, poverty and injustice. We do this in partnership with people on the ground, churches, Civil Society and Government to create lasting change from the individual experience all the way to policy improvements. We are motivated by love for people, and a stubborn belief that all people should have access to more than a minimum quality of life. Approaching our work with an ethos of partnership, shared learning and innovation, Zoë-Life is committed to finding fresh avenues to provide dignity, sustainability and economic growth.
Vision, Mission & Values
Driven by integrity, innovation and excellence, Zoë-Life aims to facilitate ‘authentic abundance’ in societies through:
- Strategic partnerships
- Systems strengthening
- Impacting Individuals
- Integrated community development
Strategic Pillars Our work can be grouped into four pillars, each with a specific goal but working together to support societal transformation.
Strategic Partnerships: Our work is based in relationships with individuals, organizations and communities, and through these relationships we have built expertise in identifying, building and mobilizing human, material and social capital. We draw together people, communities and organizations to ensure that the right people work together to enhance efficiency and make a greater impact. Systems Development: Societies function better with strong and sustainable systems. Zoë-Life develops and improves systems within health facilities, programme areas, and community projects. This is achieved through design, monitoring and evaluation, quality assurance and improvement, innovative solutions, training and governance. Impacting Individuals: Systems are driven by individuals, and social transformation begins with a vitalised individual. Zoë-Life strives to impact individuals to bring excellence and life to their environments through love, leadership support, mentorships, team strengthening, thinking skills and care-of the carer interventions. Ensuring that our approach is always relational, we develop programmes and interventions that unlock people’s potential to create deep and meaningful social change. Community Development: At the heart of Zoë-Life’s vision and mission is an abiding love for marginalized people struggling to overcome generations of hardship and exclusion. Through multi-sectoral linkages, we offer support to men, women, children, families, churches, schools, workplace, refugees and the marginalized. Zoë-Life works to bring life to communities through people focused services, organizational strengthening, training and linkages. Our model provides essential service support within communities, prioritizing the poor and highly vulnerable populations.
