Zambia PowerPlay Centers

The Zambia PowerPlay Center webpage is under construction, We are looking to partner with a Zambian Bishop to establish this pilot project.

Compliments of wikipedia.orgSchooling usually falls into three levels: Primary (Years 1 to 7), Junior Secondary (Years 8 to 9) and Upper Secondary (Years 10 to 12). So-called "Basic" schools teach Years 1 to 9, as Year 9 is considered to be a decent level of schooling for the majority of children; however, schooling is only free up to Year 7 and most children drop out then.


Both government and private schools exist in Zambia. The private school system began largely as a result of Christian mission efforts during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.


Over 70% percent of Zambians live in poverty. Per capita annual incomes are currently at about one-half their levels at independence and, at $395, place the country among the world's poorest nations. Social indicators continue to decline, particularly in measurements of life expectancy at birth (about thirty-seven years) and maternal mortality (729 per 100,000 pregnancies). The country's rate of economic growth cannot support rapid population growth or the strain which HIV/AIDS related issues (i.e. rising medical costs, decline in worker productivity) place on government resources. Zambia isalso one of sub-Saharan Africa's most highly urbanized countries. Almost one-half of the country's eleven million people are concentrated in a few urban zones strung along the major transportation corridors, while rural areas are sparsely populated. Unemployment and underemployment are serious problems.


HIV/AIDS is the nation's greatest problem, with 17% prevalence among the adult population. HIV/AIDS will continue to ravage Zambian economic, political, cultural, and social development for the foreseeable future.

Pastor David Lotieh Akondowe is the United Caribbean Trust Tanzania representative. He is also the head of the House of Freedom Tanzania and has been responsible for establishing the churches in Zambia.

Below is a letter from him received this New Year.

"Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ,

I am glad to inform you that we have opened a new church in Zambia in a place called Nakonde and there is a Zambian who is there to take care of the church

Seen here Pastor Israel Siame on the door of the church in Zambia

Our vision is to see the ministries reaching Africa, so its our prayer that the church will be a channel to reach other African countries like DRC{Democratic Republic of Congo] and other countries which are bordering their country[Zambia]

Our aim is to see the ministries reaching the un-reached with the Gospel or Christ more effectively

We have decided to put someone of their own language [Bemba] who is mature that will be able to talk with those who can not speak English.

The only part remaining is to train church leaders in Zambia now I would like to ask for any support from the United Caribbean Trust which can help me with one teacher to go the country to train them [leaders]and give them some learning materials which I feel will help them a lot in their ministry.The materials and books are in Tanzania and we need money for this work. As soon as we can fund the trip we will go and do the work."

Pastor Lotieh Akondowe

Part of the vision for Tanzania is to empower the body of Christ and send them out for the Great Commission. Numerous young men and women in Zambia have a calling on their lives to enter ministry, however in many cases recourses are lacking.

There is the opportunity to go to Bible School in either Malawi or Tanzania however sponsorship is needed to see this programme activated.

US $50.00 per month is required to educate a Zambian pastor in Malawi. Your help is needed.
