Prevent! Sexual and Gender-Based Violence Project
The Prevent! Sexual and Gender-Based Violence is a project under the Natwampane Programme. The Natwampane Programme is a Government-led four-and-a-half-year programme funded by the European Union and implemented in Luapula and Northern Provinces by BBC Media Action, Lifeline Childline, GIZ, Norwegian Church Aid and World Vision.
The overall objective of the Natwampane Programme is to reduce Sexual and Gender-Based Violence in Zambia, particularly in the Northern and Luapula provinces, to be achieved through two specific objectives: SO1) To prevent SGBV by challenging and changing beliefs, attitudes and practices; and SO2) To increase SGBV survivors’ access and use of comprehensive support services. Although the focus is on Luapula and Northern provinces, the Natwampane programme also has a national focus, supporting the division of Gender in policy and system building and strengthening coordination at both provincial and national levels.
World Vision Zambia leads implementation in Northern Province. It is a subgrantee to Norwegian Church Aid in Luapula Province (“From Trauma To Resilience (FTTR)” project), responsible for the response component of the project.
The Programs of Scale (PoS), a 3-year project with USD 2 million in funding each from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Rotary International and World Vision United States, aims at supporting the scaling up of Integrated Community Case Management (iCCM+) in 10 districts in Central and Muchinga Province, respectively of the Republic of Zambia.
The PoS Project’s primary outcomes are:
- Reduced cases of malaria, especially severe malaria and deaths, in PoS districts by 2024
- iCCM+ PoS sustained under Zambian Government management and financing
Survive to Thrive (S2T) Project

The project aims to increase the retention of 7,000 at-risk children (including 6,000 high-risk and 1,000 most at-risk learners) in quality primary education in Zambia by 2025.
This will be achieved through three outcomes:

UPLIFT Education Project
The overall goal of the European Union in Zambia funded project 'Urban and Rural Programme for Learners’ Inclusion, Foundation, and Transformation through Education (UPLIFT - Education)' is to contribute to the empowerment of children and youths in Zambia through increased access to inclusive and quality education by 2023.
The project, co-implemented by World Vision Zambia and FAWEZA, builds on the government’s education programme, guided by the relevant national policies and strategies on education and international conventions on children’s rights, which will contribute to the achievement of SDG 4, “Quality Education”, which aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities. The UPLIFT project is fully aligned with and complementary to the National Education Policy of 1996.
Sustainable Land Regeneration project
World Vision’s Zambia Sustainable Land Regeneration project aims to restore 75,000 hectares of degraded communal and individual farmland using Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR) by 2027, benefiting 5,100 people in rural farming households and associated industries, and contributing to Zambia’s own commitment to multilateral environment agreements including UN Convention to Combat Desertification.
Rural Zambians depend on forests for their livelihood, overall at 20% of all household income nationally. However, charcoal and fuel wood production, as well as the clearance of forested land for agriculture, settlement expansion and mining, has resulted in an annual deforestation rate of approximately 276,000 hectares every year (FAO), increasing greenhouse gas emissions and impacting community development, especially for subsistence farmers who are most vulnerable to climate variations.
Scaling Up Nutrition Project
The SUN II programme is a 4-year initiative supporting MCDP II led by UNICEF in partnership with the National Food and Nutrition Commission, line ministries, other UN agencies, and non-governmental organizations. The programme is generously supported by the European Union, the Federal Republic of Germany through KFW Development Bank, the Swedish international development cooperation agency (Sida) and UK aid from the British people. SUN II provides a package of interventions in communities that adopt multiple approaches to delivering services to households in 17 districts of Zambia.
