Ukupela Means To Give

At Ukupela, we are dedicated to enriching the lives of less privileged children in Zambia through education, healthcare, and social support. Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty and create opportunities for a brighter future, where every child in Zambia can reach their full potential.

Education is the foundation of change, and we believe that every child deserves access to quality education, regardless of their economic background. We partner with local schools and organisations to provide essential resources like books, educational materials, and structure maintenance. By doing so, we aim to create an environment where children can thrive, learn, and develop the skills they need for a better future.

Healthcare is a fundamental human right, and many children in Zambia face health challenges due to a lack of access to medical facilities and proper nutrition. Our organisation works to improve the health and well-being of these children by providing essential medical care and promoting health education in communities.

Social support is vital for the development of children, as it helps them cope with the hardships of life and builds a strong foundation for their future. We plan to collaborate with local communities, empowering them to identify their needs and develop tailored solutions. Our initiatives would include mentorship programs, psychosocial support, and child protection services to safeguard children from abuse and neglect.

Together, we can make a lasting impact on the lives of children in Zambia. We invite you to join us in our mission to empower the future generations of Zambia. Explore our website to learn more about our projects, success stories, and how you can support our cause.


Zambia is a landlocked country located in Southern Africa. With a population of over 17 million people, Zambia is a country of great diversity, boasting a variety of cultures, languages, and traditions. It is home to some of Africa’s most stunning natural wonders, including Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Despite its natural beauty and cultural diversity, Zambia is one of the poorest countries in the world. More than 60% of the population lives below the poverty line, with limited access to basic necessities such as clean water, healthcare, and education. In addition, Zambia is facing significant challenges such as high rates of HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other infectious diseases, which contribute to its low life expectancy.

Overall, Zambia is a country of great potential, with a rich culture and stunning natural beauty. However, it faces significant challenges that require the support of NGOs and other organisations to address. With the right partnerships and investments, Zambia can overcome these challenges and build a brighter future for its people and very importantly for its youth.
