SUPPORTING RURAL COMMUNITIES IN ZAMBIA
Improving access to education for children
Economic empowerment and sustainable livelihoods through better farming methods and micro credit
Empowerment for women through the establishment of village banks.
Raising awareness of HIV/AIDS, its prevention and how to live positively.
BZT’s objective is to provide the means for Zambians living in very isolated rural areas to help themselves to be released from the shackles of poverty.
100% of your donation goes directly to projects in Zambia.
The work of BZT is dependent upon the generosity of many different donors. We are extremely grateful to the many friends, supporters, legators, companies and trusts who have invested in providing this vital co-operation for community projects in Zambia.
NEW HAND WASHING FACILITIES IN ZAMBIAN SCHOOLS – A HELPING HAND FROM OUR GENEROUS DONORS
We are delighted some generous donors to the Baynards Zambia Trust are funding hand washing facilities across all of the 18 schools which BZT has been supporting in very isolated communities. Handwashing is so important to stop the spread of Covid 19 and also for general hygiene. The construction is now underway.
The facilities comprise a raised water tank and tap which is attached to a 3 metre horizontal perfected pipe so many children together can access the water on each side and wash their hands! This will not only benefit school pupils, but many others as the school site acts as a hub for community activities such as adult literacy classes, meetings of women involved in village banks, as well as farmers’ meetings.
A population of 90,000 will benefit from this initiative which will save lives and improve health.
Thank you to those who have made this possible.
