ZRDF’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. Funding is provided by our long-standing partners - the Baynards Zambia Trust (, Egmont Trust and RUFEP.

There are four key parts to the work ZRDF undertakes:

  1. Improving access to education for school going children

  2. Economic empowerment and sustainable livelihoods through better farming methods and micro credit

  3. Economic empowerment for women through the establishment of village banks.

  4. Raising awareness of HIV/AIDS, its prevention and how to live with it positively.
