“as a matter of fairness, that your abundance at the present time should supply their need” (2Cor 8v14)
Caring and sharing are important characteristics of the Christian faith. As a non-profit making organisation our aim is to create opportunities that will alleviate the poverty felt by those in greatest need.

Sponsoring Children's Education
PLEASE GIVE THEM THE CHANCE THEY DESERVE
In Zambia many thousands of children remain uneducated because their parents or guardians cannot afford to send them to school.
This programme provides financial support to those most vulnerable.
All children are selected and monitored by a team of qualified people.
All children are being cared for by fellow Christians
Sponsors have secured access to reports about the child’s progress and wellbeing.
All money donated goes directly to the project

Providing food for the family is the main priority of every subsistence farmer
The SHAREAfrica Outgrowers programme provides seed, training, equipment, and a guaranteed market for their produce.
All famers are fellow believers living in impoverished conditions in rural Zambia
The benefits extend to the whole family as well as dependents and workers
All donated money goes directly to the farmer. Management overheads are covered by SHAREAfrica.

Select and sponsor a farmer.
SHAREAFrica Zambia (SAZ) has a small farm in the Eastern Province where they grow a variety of seed for distribution to the farmers on the Outgrowers scheme. The improvement in yields has greatly improved farmer earnings. We will continue our research into seed that is suited to the harsh conditions prevalent in these areas. For more information visit www.shareafricazambia.com.
Grain produced by the Outgrowers is purchased and brought back to a small factory in Lusaka where it is made into food products which are sold to local supermarkets. The factory is a ‘Not for Profit’ business with profits being used to support other sustainable projects. The factory also employs and trains people who otherwise would be unemployed.

With so few people in gainful employment many assemblies in Zambia struggle to maintain their facilities. In the past SHAREAfrica Zambia has helped to build structures as well as provide funds for Bibles, Hymnbooks, and Gospel Outreach. We have also delivered humanitarian aid during times of famine, especially to the elderly who rely on friends and family to provide food.
Electricity Upgrade for the Food Factory: After months of waiting, the electricity upgrade is complete. The new process line is now being tested. The first new product will complete quality assurance next month. Our aim is to have it on supermarket shelves by the end of August.
New Office Block: Building work is now underway. The foundation and sewage systems are installed and we are ready to start stage 2 which is the superstructure. There will be a further three stages including the roof, the services, the finishing including furniture and fittings. The office is modest in design with a flat roof. It will accommodate 8 people. Each stage will commence once we have raised the necessary funding.
Orphan Programme Software: The new system is now live. Records are being checked and updated. New children are being added to the system for new sponsors. The on-line sponsorship feature is also live; new children can be sponsored by following the links on this site. For those who use the system to check on sponsored children, there are instructions on the site on how to reset you password. If you have any problems please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sponsorship for Farmers: Our Farming Programme has proved very beneficial to farmers and their families. Not only has it brought about improved diets for families but has enabled farmers to pay school fees, repair houses and buy oxen. We therefore, want to expand the programme to accommodate many more believers who have been asking to join the scheme. To help fund the programme we have developed a Farmer Support system, similar to the Orphan Support system, where people can select a family and donate a monthly amount towards their support. You can do this by following the links on this site. The system will be administered by Mwewa Mwindula who is located in Chipata and who is responsible for the farming programmes.
New products are constantly being developed. Moringa peanut butter and chicken spice mix were launched in April. A new cornflake line will be launched in August. A new food pack has been developed for malnourished children which will be part of the allocation given to the children on the Orphan Programme. Packaging and marketing are critical elements of food production – it is also a major cost.
