Friends of Monze builds and equips schools in the Monze area of southern Zambia to improve education and health. We have built 7 schools in the last 5 years with 2 more planned. We work closely with our partners Zambian Women and Girls Foundation.

COVID-19 has led to schools being closed on Zambia. at the request of the Department of Health in Monze we are providing soap and water for handwashing. We are continuing our work promoting permaculture methods of growing drought resistant crops in school gardens and communities. We are building our 8th school Mungolo in a remote rural area.
