Keepers Zambia Foundation (KZF) was registered in January 1996 as a non–profit, non governmental organisation in response to increasing poverty levels and deprivation among peri – urban and rural based households of Zambia.
Over a period of 21 years, KZF has grown from a regional to a national organisation by expanding activities to all the ten provinces of the country. The range of partners has grown to include local and international NGOs, the Government of the Republic of Zambia, the European Union, the United Nations system and the United States Government.
During this period, KZF has reached more than a million families through 50 projects in the fields of agriculture, environment and natural resources, water, sanitation and hygiene, enterprise development and disaster risk reduction.
500 Women Earn from Solid Waste Value Addition
Keepers Zambia Foundation works with women groups to enhance their capacities in solid waste value addition. An average of 2kgs of waste is generated everyday and this poses serious threat to the lives of the people from diseases. Because of this problem, KZF works with the women groups who use plastics bags to make door mats and handbags while high density plastics are sold to recycling companies. This has created incomes for elderly women, youth, and widows,divorced, disabled etc
