“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 through improved incomes.

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.
SHAREAfrica Zambia is implementing a new business system. The new system will allow greater transparency on how money is spent and on how the income and expense is managed for each activity. The new system will improve our ability to manage budgets and expenses for the Orphan System, Farms, Factory as well as the many support programmes we run in parallel with our main activities. We plan to have the new system operating by the end of July.
New products are constantly being developed. The latest Bran Flakes and Breakfast Porridge are now on the market. Our aim is to continue to develop food with a high nutritional value. Zambia has a high percentage of people, particularly children, who are malnourished. As a non profit making organisation we consciously respond to the needs of the most vulnerable.
The 24 four pair of oxen delivered last year have proved very beneficial. We pan to increase that number by a further 10 pair for the 20/21 season. The package includes ploughs and ox carts. The scheme is being carefully monitored to see how the use of animals can improve yields. We are also looking at how farmers manage the animals to prevent disease, and how they secure them in safe grazing areas to prevent crop damage.
The land in Chamasongwe, allocated by Chief Mafuta, has been cleared and developed for seed growing. A bore-hole, storage shed and caretakers accommodation have all been installed. The land was virgin bush therefore it will take another year of careful cultivation before it will yield results. Next season we plan to grow soya or beans. The output should then justify the 18 months of preparation.
