We all feel it. Life is meant to be more than just personal pursuits. It’s most vibrant when you are taking care of the community around you. Because you know what? When you care for those around you, they in return care for you. It’s a beautiful feeling!
People in Zimbabwe have a saying for this feeling: “I am strong if YOU are strong.” In this small African country racked with poverty and oppression, you find people dedicated to caring for their community. When everything is stripped away, we find that this is the only way to live abundantly.
The Elias Fund was founded on this principle. We are not just a humanitarian organization supporting local Zimbabwean communities; we are advocates for a lifestyle characterized by the idea that I am strong if you are strong.
You can join us in living and spreading this message. By joining this movement you are loudly proclaiming, “I am strong if you strong!” It’s more than saying, it’s a lifestyle.
How to join:
- Step one: Sign up to donate a small, monthly contribution. In so doing, you build strong communities in Zimbabwe through the humanitarian efforts of the Elias Fund.
- Step two: Make a conscience effort to locally enact the “I am Strong” principle. Volunteer at the local soup kitchen, or tutor in an after-school program. It can be as simple as helping a friend who has car trouble. Whatever “it” is, find ways to build-up the community around you.
- Step three: Repeat step two as much as possible!
Hope can be given to one only by other human beings. – Elie Wiesel
