Foundation for Educational projects in Zambia
When considering the name of the Foundation questions like 'why Zambia' and 'why education' come up immediately. The answer is simple. Like often, whenever you live and work in a particular country, when you get friends there and when it's the place where your children are being born, you are gonna love that country. This also happened with the founders of the organization, Marianne Willeboordse and Chris Hendriks. In 1973 they went to Zambia for the first time. More precisely, they went to Chadiza near Chipata, were they were both working as teachers - in primary and secondary education respectively. After that Zambia remained the theme of their lives. First they went for another three years to Lusaka, working at the University, and after that they visited Zambia regularly for a shorter period of time for specific smaller projects. And as it looks now this will still continue for some time.
