VisionZambia is dedicated to working with communities that need support in creating their own development. At present we work with a large community in Linda Compound, near Lusaka.
Approximately 45,000 people live in Linda and most are challenged by a lack of basic services including health care, education and access to water and sanitation. In addition HIV is pervasive in this part of Africa and many children are orphaned at a young age or cared for by their elderly grandparents.
VisionZambia believes that it is important to work in true partnership with the Linda community, so that both groups can develop and learn from the relationship.
Our Charitable Objectives:
- the advancement of education and training
- the relief of poverty through income-generating activities which become self-sustaining
- the preservation and protection of health
VisionZambia believes it is important to devote our energies to ensuring communities in Zambia enjoy success and equality, whilst achieving their own aspirations and rediscovering the richness of their ancestral and cultural past.
VisionZambia was founded on the principles of Psychology of Vision. Many of our members and supporters are part of this community. Therefore we are committed to the following principles:
Partnership and success – when we are in partnership with others we are naturally successful because the dynamics of partnership, which are bonding, intimacy and balance, are also the dynamics of success.
Effective communication – the key to change and transformation is communication and transparency and we are committed to becoming more and more effective in all our communications with beneficiaries, donors and partners.
Equality – if we do not consider ourselves and others as equals we fall into the trap of sacrifice, which many of us hide by going independent and therefore creating co-dependency. There can only be love and sharing and support between equals.
Integrity – we value integrity, recognising its importance to us as individuals and as groups, because it is through being honest in every aspect of our lives that we discover our true nature, and the true nature of others.
Service – A contribution to bettering humanity is an important part of everyone’s purpose. Service requires giving unconditionally.
