This is what we do


Friends For Zambia, a  non-governmental organization (NGO) in Canada, works to further primary education in the community of Lilayi, Zambia.  FFZ was established to financially assist the community to construct Twitti Primary School.  This beautiful school,serving approximately 500 children from Baby Class to Grade 7, was officially opened in July 2012. 


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


In 2019 the need for a new larger school bus to bring the ever-increasing number of children to school became apparent.  A call for donations was made in Canada and many people came forward to help. Thank you for your generosity! 


The bus was purchased and arrived last August.  The children,their parents and guardians, the bus driver, the teachers and the administration all welcomed the new transport.  Twitti pupils now have a safe and reliable way to travel to school and back home.

Lafarge Zambia & Social Responsibility

A strong community statement from Lafarge: "When our communities start to prosper because of our involvement and the Lafarge name becomes synonymous with constant unwavering commitment, then we are on our way to one of our greatest growth objectives: Building a better Zambia.

Lafarge/Twitti Partnership - History started in 2007

Soon after an initial connection was made between Twitti School and Lafarge in 2007 by Friends For Zambia, the company made a commitment to provide all the bags of cement required to construct the new Twitti School buildings.  The first delivery was made in April 2008, and deliveries continued until the school was complete.
