Building brighter futures
Build It has been working in Zambia since 2007.
We are in the business of building. With our community of support in Zambia, Africa and across the world we:
- Help unemployed young people to build themselves into skilled and empowered individuals to earn a living and provide for their families.
- Build skills training programmes which are fit to meet the needs of a growing country – bricklayers, carpenters, painters, plasterers, tilers and more. We support our graduates beyond their initial training, working to connect them employment and mentoring opportunities.
- Support these skilled workers to build better schools, clinics, homes, sanitation facilities and more, in disadvantaged communities. These facilities aid health and education charity efforts in Africa.
Build It is an international charity, and registered in Zambia and the UK.
The opportunity to work and thrive
We work in Zambia, one of the poorest countries in Africa where 64% of the population lives below the poverty line and 80% have no regular income (World Bank 2017). As a result for many Zambian communities life is a daily struggle for survival, with limited access to education, health and basic sanitation.
But there is a real opportunity to make a difference in Zambia. Build It has been working in Zambia for over 15 years. We have established effective partnerships and networks. We are led by strong, experienced Boards in Zambia and in the UK.
Our Centre for Excellence is at the heart of our ambitious plans to expand our training programme, with strong links to local employers and working towards international standards.
We are a learning organisation that seeks to constantly adapt and improve. Our carefully considered approach focuses on genuinely sustainable and measured impact on the lives of young people in Zambia.
