Project Code: ZZpp601

The CBAZ Holistic Transformation project will enable the establishment of a skills training centre in Kipiri Mposhi, a regional centre in Central Zambia and the home base of the Central Baptist Association of Zambia.

This centre will provide life-transforming skills training and employment and income- generating opportunities for vulnerable youth and women from impoverished communities in Central Zambia. Participants will have access to a range of vocational training options, such as micro business skills, bricklaying, carpentry, sewing and hairdressing. Relevant skills training provides long-term opportunities for at-risk Zambians. 

The centre is being developed as part of a new partnership agreement between CBAZ and Baptist Mission Australia.

Zambia is a country experiencing significant poverty, with significant population growth expected by 2025. One key reason is the country’s extremely high adolescent pregnancy rate. In seeking to respond with a proactive, holistic response, CBAZ leadership see a vital need to support at-risk youth and vulnerable women.

Success will see participants experience greater dignity, independence, choice, financial and social inclusion in the community as well as the opportunity to earn an income, supporting themselves and family members. 

Support for this project is tax deductible.
