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.

What's happening at Twitti? The latest news is here!

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.
