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.

Term 3 of 2018 Begins on Monday

The students of Twitti Primary School have been enjoying their holiday over the past month, while their teachers and administrators have felt the peace and quiet.  Now it is time to get back to work for the final term of the 2018 school year.  National Exams will be coming for the Grade 7 pupils in November requiring a great deal of preparation.  All the children will be  learning as much as possible before year end evaluations.

Good wishes for Term 3, Twitti students!  From your families and from Canadian donors and friends!

New Address for Twitti Primary school

Lilayi Close

The road on which Twitti Primary School is located was given a new name by the Lilayi Community about 6 months ago. 

It is now called Lilayi Close. Therefore the old name, Lilayi Gravel Road, is no longer valid.

 The address  of Twitti Primary School  has changed from Plot 86, Lilayi Gravel Road, to Plot 86 Lilayi Close, Lilayi, Zambia.
