Zakale is the Swahili word for what has been thrown away, being made new again. John Muchero is a living example of the word zakale.  As a young man John says he engaged in activities that were not pleasing to God.  After turning his life over to God, he discovered he possessed a gift in art and handcrafts. He 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 give to World Visions maximum impact fund to help families all over the world, and receive the amazing handmade beaded ornaments you see in this video.
