Safety and education for vulnerable children

Street life in Zambia is a reality for many girls here. Come and help us finish the work at Vision of Hope – a safe house for street girls – as well as build new classrooms for schools in the shanty towns around Lusaka to give children the best chance at a future out of poverty.


Please note that the trip dates may vary a day either way due to flight availability.

The Projects

People like you have already helped build the main accommodation at Vision of Hope and this year we’re building a kitchen and a multi-purpose common/dining room. This year is likely to be our last year working at VoH, so come and help with the finishing touches! 

We will also be building further classrooms at Garden Hill, Kumbayah and Crown of Life Schools, enabling more children in the community's shanty towns to go to school.

Afternoon: Meet our local partners who work amongst the disadvantaged and marginalised people in Lusaka. Spend the afternoon on a street visit with the Footprints team, or spend the day at Chisomo - a drop–in centre for children from the street.

Rest and Relaxation

You will visit the world-renowned Victoria Falls and also take a sunset cruise down the Zambezi, in the footsteps of the great Dr Livingstone.
