From the Greater DC webpage:
“Come have a blast with us at this special event where you can get a great Zumba workout, have fun, AND help end gender-based violence all at once!
But, how does spending my Saturday doing Zumba with my friends help women in Africa???
We are proud to donate the proceeds to CBE International for their initiative in collaborating with churches & NGO leaders in Africa who have a track record of challenging gender-based violence, child marriage, female genital mutilation, and other injustices suffered by women. Misunderstanding of scripture fuels gender-based violence, so CBE is helping to tell the story of the truth in God’s word of equality.
CBE is expanding outreach alongside pastors in Cameroon, Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, and beyond. In fact, CBE will invest over $48,000 and countless staff hours in these vital programs. But they need our help today. Your participation or donation will support this transformative work with a generous contribution toward books, scholarships, and general ministry needs.”
