ENTREPRENEURSHIP
& JOB CREATION

Each year, about 50 young women graduate from our Entrepreneurship Academy equipped with computer skills, English literacy, and tools to compete in local and global markets.

Our educated young women are lifting their families and communities out of poverty.

At our Entrepreneurship Academy, we provide internships where our young women receive hands-on training.

As they practice the techniques required for each job, they are also learning essential entrepreneurial skills like time management and organization, bookkeeping and financial planning, and marketing and customer service. Our internships include:

• Bakery & Restaurant 
•  Tailoring  • Salon  • Photography
• Design
• Bracelets

A message from one of our recent graduates:

"Thank you, I Am Zambia, for giving us this trade. My life is not the same. I now have a business mind and a fighting spirity as I try to be a cycle breaker."

Your generous donations make stories like these possible.

SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES

Our specialized programs are designed to promote a path to independence, self-reliance, and opportunity.

We are investing in sustainable communities.

Real social impact requires a holistic approach. Our goal is to forge partnerships, organize and distribute resources, and amplify the efforts of others throughout the region.

Once fundamental needs are met, the next step toward meaningful change is education. That might take place in:

• Primary School   • Women's Literacy Program   • Other on-the-job training

• Primary School  • Women's Literacy Program
• Other on-the-job training

Once schools, clinics, wells, and other properties are in place, they need to be maintained; those jobs go to trained, local staff.

One of our goals for 2021 is to get the kids on laptops so they can compete with children going to schools in more affluent communities.

Your generous donations help us to outfit our classrooms, to train our staff, to cultivate our gardens, and to maintain our medical clinic, schools, and other properties.

HUMANITARIAN INTERVENTIONS

In some communities, access to clean water, food, and medical care are scarce. We partner with these villages to alleviate critical problems so that meaningful job training and education can take place.

Before lasting change can take place, fundamental human needs must be met.

Most of the poorest Zambians live in remote villages where necessities like clean water, education, medical care, and food are scarce.

Since 2017, we’ve partnered with the village in Mwembeshi, Zambia to help alleviate some of the more critical problems so that villagers have access to greater opportunities and resources right in their own community. Some of these projects include:

  • Medical Clinic
  • Clean Water
  • Farming & Livestock

Thank you for your support! Your generous donations fund life-saving projects like these.
