Resilience and Livelihood

We help build sustainable communities enabling families to create lasting change in their lives.


World Vision Zambia is contributing to the improved and resilient livelihoods of households in 23 districts across the country. We want all families to have the skills/ability to provide nutritious food, educational opportunities, and emotional support necessary to thrive. To achieve this, we are working towards

  • Increasing household income
  • Improving household food security
  • Improving families’ abilities to prepare for and cope with emergencies, and
  • Improving on and off-farm management of natural resources

To improve financial inclusiveness, especially for rural communities, World Vision Zambia uses the Savings for Transformation model, to empower people with knowledge on how to create savings as a group in a safe, suitable and flexible way. Funds accumulated through savings are then borrowed by members and paid back at very low-interest rates, for use in productive activities which allows farmers to acquire assets as well as send their children to school. In 2020, World Vision Zambia supported, mentored, and coached 4,678 Savings For Transformation Groups which accumulated ZMK 44.6 million. To support farmers’ agricultural needs, we support communities with knowledge and skills which enable them to use climate-smart farming methods to improve adaptation to climate change and enhance crop and livestock production.
