Who We Are
Volunteer Zambia is an international volunteering programme between several leading UK universities and the Zambian sports NGO, Sport in Action. We use sport as a tool to engage, educate and empower thousands of young people every week in Zambia and the UK. As part of the Wallace Group partnership, Volunteer Zambia has continued to grow as a leader in UK university volunteering initiatives.
Community Hub Sites
The Wallace Group is working with Sport In Action and Zambia’s National Sports Federations to develop community hub sites, with the aim of widening the impact of sport across Zambia.
Run ‘in the community, by the community, for the community’ hub sites are central venues within a community, offering sport specific training and competition.
Located, owned and run within the community they serve, the sites are focused on the creation of pathways, the empowerment and development of young individuals within the community (primarily women and girls), and have an underlying focus on sustainability.
Every year, around 100 volunteers from seven of the top universities in the UK join forces to deliver four months of coaching and development projects in the city of Lusaka, Zambia. We offer coaching, non-coaching and logistical volunteering roles, available to all students at our partner universities. Volunteers can expect to engage with teaching, sports coaching, cooking, cleaning, construction, EVERYTHING!
