Hi my names zac, zimlink founder. Together with a family of volunteers based in the uk and Zimbabwe we created zimlink to enable an exchange of ideas and information within communities. We provide equipment such as cameras, laptops and offer training on how to build websites and produce work. We have created an online channel combined with the zimlink magazine to allow a free place to share media such as articles local history the arts and much more
Zimlink promotes other grass roots organisations and individuals who need to get their message out there, whether it be filming an event, presentation or creating a website. We give training in social media help design logos and give advice on business strategy by transferring our knowledge to others, we can enable communities to share and understand better the world around us and give them skills that can change their lives and ours.
The most import thing we offer is a voice for people who would not be able to tell their story share their art or opinions; zimlink supply the knowledge and equipment to do so.
we can get lost in a sea of media and politics, forgetting about the people that are struggling to get by every day, that’s where zimlink comes in, non-religious non-political, zimlink its open to everybody every skill set every social group, we all have something to give, the ability to grow. Zimlink can bridge the gap, fulfilling a clear need in a global society for inclusion and empowerment.
