The name of the foundation automaticly leads to questions such as why education and why Zambia. The choice of Zambia has a personal background and is therefore, like so many personal things, to a certain extend a matter of chance. The fact remains however that Zambia is a beautiful country to live in, and Zambians are very pleasant people to deal with. The choice of education is a more explicit one.

Elsewhere on this website the background of this choice is discussed. It should be noted however that development is a multidimensional space in which emphasis can be put on the long or short term and on individuals or society as a whole. Depending on these accents different people will consider different aspects of cooperation as important.
