The Zambia Report – Oct-17

I was in Zambia for a support visit from 18-Oct-17 to 9-Nov-17.

The Zambia Report – May-15

What’s the best way to fulfil our plan to hand over responsibility for Kit Yamoyo to local organisations? With scale-up finally getting underway, we decided that a trip to Zambia once a quarter, with remote support in between, would offer the best chance of success. We were last there in Jan/Feb-15 (as reported here). By the […]
