Impact Zambia was established in 2012 with a vision of working in partnership with indigenous leaders to help some of the poorest communities in rural areas of southwestern Zambia. Its primary ministries are operated through New Life Tabernacle (founded in 1994 and headquartered in Itezhi-tezhi, Zambia) and its 20+ branch churches.
Impact Zambia’s first project was to build a facility that doubled up as an office and school on the site of the Itezhi-tezhi church, and to build new church buildings in Mumbwa and Namwala. Through partnerships with Canadian and South African churches, International Teams Canada, the Share Your Knowledge group, and Rotary International, they have since expanded their programs to include community development initiatives designed to break the cycle of poverty by limiting isolation and providing education and vocational training.read more →

Impact Zambia 2017 Goals
1Complete Phase 1 of multipurpose training center with lodging facilitiesA training centre with overnight facilities in rural Zambia will go a far way to provide underprivileged learners new marketable skills and knowledge and equip church leaders from rural areas. It will allow the expansion of the Share Your Knowledge project that has been launched on a small scale.
2Equip Impact Zambia Training CentreThe buildings of phase one are almost habitable. With the help of Rotary International, the Training centre will be connected to the grid, and a fridge, freezer, gas stove, some mattresses and bedding will be purchased during the 2017/2018 year.
3Establish the Share Your Knowledge programThis grassroots volunteer-run program has equipped and trained more than 125 women in rural southwestern Zambia in sewing, which enabled them to provide for their families. It has been expanded to include carpentry and business training. The goal for 2017 is to grow our network and find opportunities to expand the program to include other vocational skills, such as agriculture, hospitality, catering, mechanics to provide underprivileged learners a means to support their families.
4Attend Southern African PACE summit in Oct 2017This summit is a key networking and capacity building opportunity for leaders and is hosted by PACE Ministries in Kenya. God willing we will raise funds for Daniel and Florence to attend and to go on to Dubai to grow the support base for Impact Zambia.
5Strengthen the Revolving loan fund processesThis fund is assisting members of New Life Tabernacle and Cell Ministries start or grow businesses and farm operations to develop an income stream for themselves and their families and also increase the standard of living for others in their midst. God gives us business as part of his creation so that we can direct and develop resources most efficiently.
