These are the reports of our activities from the Zambian perspective, largely written by Emmanuel Phiri, one of our directors and the most active innovator in our small organisation.
Zambian Development Support Foundation Ltd is a registered non-profit company, registered in Zambia, and through which we administer all of our programmes. The members and the directors of the company are Zambian and Irish. Our CEO is my good friend, Voster Tembo, based in Lusaka and our Ndola based director is Emmanuel Phiri. Emmanuel is also the person who is responsible for most of the innovation and the day to day management of the projects in Ndola. Emmanuel works for ZDSF as a volunteer, but gives a huge amount of his time to supporting the vulnerable and promoting the projects on the ground. Without him, we would certainly not have achieved half of what we have to date.
The following reports will give you a real insight into the work which is being done on the ground, and what is being achieved, as well as the realities of trying to make big changes in a very challenging environment.
