Coaching is training or development in which a person called a "coach" supports a learner in achieving a specific personal or professional goal. The learner is sometimes called a "coachee".
Ever heard of King Solomon’s Proverbs 6:6 in the Bible? Then the King Wrote:
“Go to the ant, you sluggard one; consider its ways and be wise! An ant is an animal of little strength, yet it is exceedingly wise. It has no commander, no leader, no overseer, ruler or chief. Yet it prepares and gathers its food at harvest and stores its provisions in summer, getting ready for winter, so that when winter and time of hibernation comes it has no worry but plenty to eat. How long will you lie there, you sluggard one? When will you get up from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity will attack you like an armed man/robber.”
The Ant is small yet, it thinks for the future and its wellbeing. The question is how? It saves enough food during summer that will last for the whole winter. Ants cannot survive on the land in winter, they hibernate, and that is why they gather food during summer for winter season. The “Mali-Ants” will be empowering the society to be financial literate so that they know how to save for the future just like the Ant does.
■ Imali is a Zulu word meaning Money
■ Reasoning behind the Concept and Logo are therefore based on the bible verse of King Solomon’s Proverbs, chapter 6, verse 6.
