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 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.
