Zambia Orphans Aid UK

Zambia has c. 1. 4 million orphans in a population of just 14 million. ZOA-UK’s mission is to enable as many impoverished orphans as possible to complete their education after parents die.

Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    We empower Zambian orphans and vulnerable children in their communities by working collaboratively with those communities. We respond to needs by forming long-lasting and sustainable partnerships with small, locally run projects. These include:
    - providing educational support or skills training
    - generating income then used to support OVCs
    - school feeding and building programmes in deprived areas
    - and providing psycho-social support
    These community-based projects find it difficult to attract funding from other sources. ZOA can make a small amount of money go a very long way.

  • Aims

    Zambia Orphans Aid UK aims to:

    • Assisting orphans to complete their schooling in a country where books, uniforms and fees are a major burden for families
    • Funding communities so they can generate more income through business and agricultural projects.
    • Helping school leavers acquire skills for the world of work
