Celebration Health is a non-profit Zimbabwean organization that carries out relief and developmental programs for the underprivileged. Their vision is to transform and reform communities through sustainable health care solutions. From providing food and fresh water to communities to running medical clinics and outreaches, Celebration Health makes an impact weekly on the ground in southern Africa.

Along with some of the biggest names in business in Africa (Econet Wireless, National Health Care Trust, Coca-Cola Africa Foundation, CitiHope International,  MedShare International, the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare and The University of Zimbabwe), Celebration Health is reaching people who cannot help themselves and providing medical care and relief where there often is none.

We believe the best story always wins. That's exactly why we love Explainify so much. Explainify is an animation and video studio that specializes in the creation of short, to-the-point stories (45-90 seconds) that effectively engage, explain and express your brand. Basically, they extract your story and helps you tell it to win more business, more relationships, and more awesome.

We work closely with the Explainify team to create visual and compelling stories for our projects. It's one thing to have a great story, but it's an entirely different thing to communicate that vision and story to potential investors, partners, and customers. Explainify helps us do just that. And with their savvy marketing approach and creative genius, they really help us put our entrepreneurs and projects on the map.

With 1 in 3 people with AIDS in Zimbabwe, children are increasingly orphaned. Compassion focuses on reaching the orphans, widows, and poor of Southern Africa. They initiate free surgeries, operations, and medical care for those in need and provide much needed love and care for the children of Zimbabwe. Partnering with some of the world's humanitarian outreaches, Emerging Ideas works with Compassion to facilitate outreaches and support. When working with Compassion, it is purely philanthropic.
