Chikumbi Community Centre, Zambia

Zambia Project

Overview 

Exodus started supporting Zambian projects in 2008 in conjunction with Baraka Community Partnerships. In that time our volunteers have been busy and their successes include renovating dozens of classrooms, helping provide clean water and sanitation, donating tonnes of educational, sporting and medical supplies and helping distribute life- saving malaria nets. 

Biggest achievement to date

Our biggest achievement is really a collective one. Over the years we have worked with 5 different schools helping out hundreds of kids in the process in many different ways. Many of these children would have been deprived of an education without our support and just helping contribute towards a brighter, healthier future for so many is an achievement we are justifiably proud of. We have also worked with two different communities on water and sanitation programmes.
