ABOUT US

Zion Care Life and Family Impact Foundation is a Non-governmental Organisation. It presents the most accessible means for building individual capacity to be better father, mother or children through godly counsel, promotion of inclusiveness of vulnerable households in national development projects, helping adolescents children achieve education, carrying out advocacy and mobilisation on Gender Equality, Child Rights, Women and Girls Empowerment in order to achieve functional and peaceful lifestyle and civic society.

OUR HISTORY

ZIONCLIFF started in 2009 as a small group of two families fellowshipping together and solving domestic problems of members as they arose. By 2015, the group had grown and transformed into a neighbourhood mobile seminar, teaching and counselling ministering to troubled marriages, youths mentoring advocacy and changing mind-sets/stereotypes against women and girls especially those in the rural communities. Recently, as a result of demand for a more legalised group, registration was sought with the appropriate Government commission in Nigeria and ZIONCLIFF’s Board of Trustees was incorporated in June 2018 with six Board members serving for the period of two years.

Apart from obtaining legal status, ZIONCLIFF has registered and enlisted either as member organisation or as partnering organisation with the following Agencies, body or network.

• NIGERIA NETWORK OF NON GOVERNMENTAL ORGANISATIONS(NNNGOs)
• WEST AFRICA CIVIL SOCIETY INSTITUTE, (WASCI) ACCRA GHANA
• GLOBAL NETWORK FOR DISASTERS RISK
• CIVIL SOCIETY ALLIANCE 2030, NIGERIA(CASO2030)
• MINISTRY OF WOMEN AFFAIRS AND POVERTY ALLIEVATION,OYO STATE, NIGERIA

ZIONCLIFF has organised three successful family life conferences (see the communiques) and several interventions.

One of such intervention is the MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME FOR INDIGENT ADOLESCENTS FROM BLENDED FAMILIES OR SINGLE PARENTHOOD. The intervention came to be through discoveries of the plights of these vulnerable youths from our 24 hour Online Counselling platform which we started May, 2018l for undergraduates in Nigerian Universities. The programme has over 100 mentees, of which 11 have become regular volunteers in our advocacy and mobilisation programmes to youth and rural dwellers.
