    Sports for all

    Improving your physical health by exercise is important for a longer life.

    In the sports program we work to develop the health and wellbeing for people in the villages. Our partner for this program is Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Confederation of Sports (NIF).

    The aim for the program is to Create Sports for all.

    Kubala girls

    Response Network runs an education sponsorship program for orphans and vulnerable girls. The girls in the program are called Kubala girls – meaning «the reading girls». Sponsors from two countries, Norway and Sweden, currently help 600 orphaned girls to take part in education in order to improve their knowledge and be more integrated in the community.

    Community schools

    Education is a universal right to every child. Building community schools is an extension of the Community school self-help program.

    When communities have shown a commitment, established a community school and made the bricks needed themselves, Response Network link them with our partner Academic Work. Academic Work donates the rest of the building materials needed to build a school building, like mortar, bricks, window glass. The villagers then continue to run the project and finish the school building. By letting they build themselves, the villagers increase their knowledge and pride for their facilitation in their community.

    Since 2004, the sponsorship from Academic Work has enabled 44 new schools. On average every school has 150 children, which gives about 6700 children an opportunity to education.




    We rely heavily on monetary donations from our partners. The funding helps us to develop good self-help programs and to offer scholarships to young African children/youngsters. Our goal is to reach out to many more villages and families who need our help. In order to do this, we depend on your support. All contributions are welcome and greatly appreciated.

    The communities take sustainable steps from poverty towards improved human rights and development by doing the work themselves. As a donor to Response Network’s village self-help programs you are contributing to strengthen the local people’s own capacity.   


    The money we receive from our generous partners goes to:

    • Conducting meetings and workshops
    • Facilitating self-help activities
    • Building community schools
    • Supporting girls rights and paying for their school fees
    • Helping disabled to be included in education and self-help activities
    • Follow ups

    If you are a large donor, we can also discuss specific themes for your help

    as long as it is in line with Response Network’s overall vision and mission.

    The village self-help programs have improved the life situation for thousands

    of people in 1000 villages in the southern part of Zambia.

    Each contribution counts. We welcome small funding from individuals as well as large funding from governments, companies and NGO’s. As our work is conducted on a continuous basis over two years, we prefer donors with a longer perspective.
