University Partners

The Wallace Group is a partnership between eight of the top universities in the UK, who share a commitment to the establishment and sustainable practices of International Development.

The focus of the group is Zambia, supporting the work of Sport in Action, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) whose purpose is to improve people’s quality of life through sport and recreational activities.

Each summer, from May-September, around 100 student and staff volunteers from across the eight UK universities come together to help and support Sport in Action in the delivery of their ‘sport development’ and ‘sport for development’ projects, aiming to make a significant contribution to the long term, sustainable development of young people in Zambia.
