PROMOTING GOOD EDUCATION

WELCOME TO

UMI FOUNDATION

The word Umi means ‘life’ in Mambwe, a local Zambian language. The African culture has a strong emphasis on humanism and working together to build a stronger community. It takes a good and strong community to create a better life for others around. Umi Foundation operates in Lusaka, Zambia, with support projects across Zambia, Malawi and South Africa. Umi Foundation believes in strengthening already existing skills and working together with local groups to make better challenging living conditions

IMPROVING

LIVES

We’ve worked on improving the lives of young people through promoting good education by improving libraries by providing educational requirements. Our support has gone beyond libraries to building classrooms where children were learning under a tree shade in one school in remote Chinsali. Our support towards women in different dire situations in rural locations helps us identify more needs in young girls destined for early marriages. We also highly support the safety of children by promoting children’s rights.

Partnerships with

organisations & communities

We have partnered with various organisations and churches in remote areas to see children in school and advocate against early child marriages. Zambia has a high rate of child marriages, yet under statutory marriage, child marriages are illegal, and considered a form of child abuse. As Zambia has ratified the United Nations Convention on the rights of a child, help us advocate for programs that will ensure children remain in school and enjoy their rights as child, as every other child in the world.
