About Me   About Me
I am 26yrs old and very Zambian. I have lived all my life in Kabwe,a peri-urban town which is also the provincial town for central province in Zambia. Kabwe is a former lead and zinc mining town which has suffered economic and social chaos since the mines closed in the early 90s.It is grappling with high levels of unemployment, illiteracy, poverty, HIVAIDS and is apparently one of the most polluted places in Southern Africa from Lead mining.

I have been working since 2004 for an organisation called Students Partnership Worldwide(SPW)an international but locally registered NGO working in collaboration with the Zambian Ministry of Education on school based sexual reproductive health and life skills education.This programme is implemented using the untapped resource of young Zambian school leavers who are trained and do voluntary placements of up to 9months in a rural schools and communities.

I have since worked with SPW from a field officer position, assistant programme coordinator to currently that of a programme coordinator. From May to November 2006, l had an opportunity to work in SPW UK as Campaigns and Advocacy officer, working and learning from young advocates in the UK on diverse issues on international development through the Students Stop AIDS Campaign- the youth arm of the UK Consortium on HIV/AIDS and International Development.

I hope to explore ways of engaging young people especially the Zambian Youths in advocating on issues that affect them and their society.'Young People are the Solution, not the Problem!!'
