Ziwani Reframed


What does it mean to look at something through a redemptive lens? How can the Christian Biblical worldview help us see our reality not as how it is, but how it should be? On the Reframed podcast channel, various perspectives are offered on how business can become a force for redemptive change within Africa’s unique contexts. In each series you’ll hear from business leaders as they explore the ways that we can fundamentally shape industry and transform society through Biblically-aligned practices.

Reframed is brought to you by Ziwani - a community of business leaders who partner together to live out Kingdom calling in the marketplace within Africa. Ziwani is a Mergon initiative. To know more about us, visit our website at ziwani.com.
