Friends For Zambia

About Us

A glimpse into what we do

Friends For Zambia is a Canadian non-governmental organization (NGO) that supports the need for basic education for the children of Lilayi, Zambia. It was established to raise money to build a community school in Lilayi, and as a result, Twitti Primary School was officially opened in July 2012. 

Since then, Friends For Zambia has maintained involvement with the school and continues to support various projects identified by the Lilayi Education Trust.

Play Park for the younger Twitti Pupils -  the gift of George Street Middle School, Fredericton, NB

Construction of the Play Park equipment is almost complete.  A few additions are being made to ensure that it is very safe for the small children. 

It must be difficult for the children in the Baby Class, Pre-Grade and Grades 1 and 2 to be patient while these additions are made.  The students at George Street Middle School, Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, who raised the money for the project are anxiously news of the Opening as well.

At Munda Wanga Environmental Park on November 11, 2018

On Sunday, November 11, 2018, the Grade 7 class of Twitti Primary School made a special trip to Munda Wanga Park in nearby Chilanga.  The pupils were celebrating the end of their National Exams.  Now they will wait for the results.  At Munda Wanga they could swim, see wildlife in the zoo and enjoy the beautiful grounds.  so nice to relax after all their study and stress.

Thank you to Twitti School bus driver,  Uncle Austine, who drove them there and back.  See more photos in the 2018 Gallery.
