The Kumena Project improves lives in Zambia

Zambia is on the frontline of the climate crisis – a crisis that is beyond the country’s control, and which is having a devastating impact on its people.

For communities who survive by farming, changes in weather patterns and an increase in floods and droughts is making life really difficult.

But, thanks to your help and the support of the Scottish Government, we are now working with more than 1,000 farming families in the region of Kabwe to improve the resilience of their land, and make their income and livelihoods more robust in the face of an uncertain future.

I have grown enough food for my family. Even with little rain, we will not go hungry this year.


In addition to improving agricultural practices, we’re working with local partners in Kabwe to tackle the spread of misinformation around COVID-19, to help establish loans and savings groups, and to provide access to clean drinking water.
