The Regina Mukondola Foundation (RMF) develops self-reliant youth in disadvantaged Zambian communities by stimulating local empowerment, providing access to education, training and vocational skills.
We bridge the gap between donors and locals with a model that pools then redistributes funds gathered from diaspora Zambians and individuals around the world.
Education is a cross-cutting activity in all the programs of the RMF. RMF currently supports Fifty (50) Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs) by providing school materials and fees. The biggest challenge is funding considering the level of poverty as a result of prevalent HIV/AIDS rates. We would love to help more OVCs but have limited funding to get to more, this is where YOUR support and donations come in.
HIV/AIDS awareness and education is mainstreamed into all RMF core programs.
The future is now
Equipping the children with 21st-century skills will prepare them for future opportunities. We will be running programs aimed at building skills from basic End User Computing to programming.

Leaning on community

With between 2 to 5 million people in Zambia being infected with HIV, it is easy to understand this epidemic has gravely impacted our society. Hundreds of children are orphaned each year due to the staggering number of deaths from HIV/AIDS.
Right now, 1.2 million orphans and vulnerable children are living in Zambia and don’t have the support or family structure they need to thrive. Many live in granny or child headed households, scraping by on less than £1.50 a day. Without access to school, they face a lifetime of poverty.
We provide uniforms, books and tuition fees, fund nutritious school meals, help school leavers gain vocational qualifications, give mental health support to those that need it and provide girls with reusable sanitary pads to keep them in the classroom.
Your help goes a long way in bringing much-needed relief to orphans and vulnerable children in rural Zambia.
You can help us give orphans and vulnerable children the chance to go to school and reach their potential.
Your gift to our center touches the life of an orphan in need. Our missionaries in Zambia need your support!
