Located in central Africa, Zambia shares its border with eight other countries. 

Although some of its neighbours, including Zimbabwe, Angola and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, have gone through some very difficult periods in their history, throughout most of its own history, Zambia has remained relatively stable.

Unemployment, trafficking, violence against women, and the economic empowerment of women are all issues affecting family life in Zambia and ones which Mothers’ Union are actively addressing at the local level.

There are more than 12,000 Mothers’ Union members across the country acting as agents of change and transformation within communities. 

Their many outreach projects include:

  • Church and Community Mobilisation
  • Campaigning against gender based violence
  • Marriage preparation
  • Health awareness programmes
