Centre for Excellence

We are building a Centre for Excellence in Zambia to deliver and promote construction skills training, small business development and sustainable building techniques.

Constructed just north of Lusaka, the Centre will be unique. As well as acting as a training centre to give young unemployed people the skills they need to get a job and work their way out of poverty, it will provide space for Build It to collaborate with other NGOs, statutory bodies and the private sector. These partnerships will improve skills training across the wider construction sector.


When complete the Centre will offer:

Training places for 1,000 disadvantaged young men and women each year

150903-masterplan-presnetation250

Centre for Excellence Appeal

We need to raise £2M in order to build the Centre and a brighter future for thousands of young unemployed men and women. To date we have secured £500,000.

“Does the idea of supporting unemployed young people, in one of the world’s poorest countries, to gain employment and work their way out of poverty excite you? If it does, then please get in contact with me”.
