Zamcogs mission is to help protect and care for vulnerable children in Africa.  Since 2004 Zamcog and its predecessor organization have funded and supported Shitima Community School and the Julie-Anne Childrens Home in Kabwe, Zambia. The school and residence welcome boys and girls of all faith traditions into a stable and caring environment in which diversity, mutual respect, self-discipline and personal achievement are valued.
The school and residence provide education, shelter and daily meals to orphans, former street kids and other vulnerable children who would otherwise live in great deprivation. Currently there are 285 pupils at Shitima School, with plans to increase the student roll as new facilities are constructed.  Approximately 100 students live onsite in the Julie-Anne Childrens Home.

Zamcog is a charity that is dedicated to the Shitima School in Kabwe, Zambia. The main aim of the school is to encourage a self-sustaining route through education, for children who can transform themselves from those who have no hope, to being those who are the hope for Zambia’s future.

Starting off by supporting just twelve street children, Zamcog’s growth and development has now opened its doors to nearly 400 students. With the money raised from DONT WALK 2012 we hope to fund the completion of  the building of a Sixth Form wing, which will prepare students for the chance to go to university, a cause very close to our hearts. It is so important to Zamcog that they ensure the school continues to grow, accommodating more children and making the school more self-sufficient whilst supporting a community co-operative.

Zamcog believes in giving a hand up, not just a hand out. Opportunity is something that many of us take for granted; at Zamcog opportunity can be a catalyst that changes lives.
