“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.

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

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.
New Office Block: The building inside is almost finished. Still a fair bit to do on the exterior but staff should be moving in sometime in April. The new office is a great encouragement to those who have been working in cramped conditions for many years.
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 want to expand the programme to accommodate the many farmers who have been asking to join the scheme. To help fund the expansion we will modify the sponsorship system so that is can take general donations for the Out-grower Scheme. This means people can donate any amount to the fund allowing it to be used to buy oxen, ploughs, silos, carts, and so on, instead of being earmarked for one farmer.
New products are constantly being developed. Cornflakes tests are complete. Full production will start in April after the installation of new packing equipment. The new food pack has been well received with additional quantities being distributed to guardians who are are need. Chicken feed is now being made using the residue from broken groundnuts, plus soy and maize.
The recent studies carried out on the use of Oxen have proved that the use of oxen in an already cleared field can increase a farmers income by more than 100%. If the yield from the additional acres is either groundnuts or soy then the cost of oxen can justified based on one years additional income. We have now begun issuing oxen to selected farmers to extend the pilot and gather more information.
Changes are being made to the Orphan System to allow donations of any amount. At present there is a fixed amount required for each child but the system will be changed so that small amounts can be accumulated to make up the required amount. It means one child may be sponsored by multiple donors. We hope to have these changes in place soon.
