Bringing vulnerable children back into education and away from child labour, child marriage and a life on the streets.
Working with communities across Zambia to bring about change to ensure a brighter future for our vulnerable children
There are many ways you can help us out and contribute to making life brighter for the vulnerable children of Zambia.
We welcome support from a wide variety of sources, through public-private partnerships, donations, in-kind on-the-ground sponsorship, holding a fundraising event and volunteers working in the field with us.
If you are interested in supporting and working with us, we would love to hear from you.
Examples of how we have been assisted in the past include:
First aid training for our care-givers
Project management guidance
Expert advice through feasibility studies
Funding sensitization programmes
Organising walk-a-thons, charity football matches and sleepouts
Donating books, games, school uniforms, teaching aids
Donations towards activity days and feeding days
Resources to cover our minimal but necessary administration costs.
Specialised materials and equipment for poultry rearing and bakeries
Volunteers from overseas, including gap year students
We have had two fantastic organised groups of British volunteers come out to Zambia to help construct the new school in Chama backed up by their own fundraising efforts in the UK.

The Livingstone Initiative teamed up with The Institute of Aquaculture at Stirling University UK and paid for one of their experts, Dr Jonas Wiza Ng'ambi, to travel up to Chama with Father Katete to undertake a study on the feasibility of setting up a possible aquaculture project to help the long-term sustainability of the new school. This was invaluable and told us that fish farming in Chama would not be viable, even though it is also a major rice-growing reagion. The ACP and our partners, The Livingstone Initiative, passionately believe that such collaborations are vitally important to all that we are doing and that detailed research is undertaken before any work begins or funding spent. This helps us ensure that all aid and donations that we receive will show positive long-term benefits and successful results.
The Livingstone Initiative has been partnering with us for 10 years, especially in respect to The Chama Project. They have been working on PR, Marketing, and Development, building partnerships and creating international collaborations, raising funds, encouraging groups of volunteers to come out and work on The Chama Project, and by encouraging us to engage the Zambian community to ensure lasting and long-term sustainability for our projects.read more
The Headmistress of St Mary's Calne, said "they didn't just want to fundraise, but to bring a group of senior girls out to Chama to help build the new school". This they did in the October heat in 2014. They were the first muzungus (white people) the villagers had ever seen and they worked so hard that by the time they left, they had completed the first building up to roof level and an ablution block. They had also had huge fun getting to know and understand the local culture and learn more about a way of life so completely different from their own. It was a hugely successful visit.
'Street kids' deserve a chance...
We want them to be able to smile again!
