The Chama Project

We are working in partnership with the Community of Chama, the Seven (7) Traditional Chiefs, the District Administration, the District Council, the Zambian Ministry of Education, The Livingstone Initiative, Canadian High Commission and other organisations to build the first secondary school for girls. Chama is a remote, rural and very poor district of north-eastern Zambia, where there are over 53,000 women and girls, the majority of whom have little or no access to secondary education.  

The ACP Is carrying out sensitisation campaigns against child marriages and building a boarding secondary school for girls. This is aimed at raising awareness of the danger of child marriages and help to withdraw and prevent Girls from Child Marriages.

Building a future...

This is a project which will bring benefits to the whole community, families, young mothers and children. 

The men and women of the villages surrounding the school site at Tembwe are making hundreds of thousands of bricks; the Zambian government is helping with teaching staff, books, staff wages and staff living accommodation; Zambian businesses and organisations, too, are working with us, as well as volunteers. 

By working together in partnership like this we are going to be able to create a brighter future by making a real and sustainable difference to the lives of these children and their families.

From the UK alone as a result of The Livingstone Initiative's partnership, we have so far received support to the value of over £55,000,  comprising generous donations, in-kind or on-the-ground sponsorship, visits by UK groups, and partnerships. 

Here in Zambia, we are matching overseas donations and sponsorships to ensure that the project is strongly supported within Zambia and that it  remains sustainable in the longer-term.
