Zambia belongs to the group of the poorest countries in the world (HDI 141/187). Therefore, most of the population lives in tough situations without sufficient access to health care, education, social welfare and protection of their rights. HIV/AIDS has further worsened the situation by bringing the traditional social system to the brink of collapse. 66.2% of the population is below the age of 25 years. Our partner organization DAPP runs various projects across all 10 provinces of Zambia reaching over 1.5 million people with common goals to tackle humanitarian, social and environmental challenges through empowering local communities. DAPP works with long-term sustainable programs that address the needs of families and communities by empowering people to take action to improve their circumstances in a collective and collaborative way.
