Our history


We are a local Zambian NGO started in 2006 by people that love Zambia and have at their heart their people, especially children.

Initially the organization was a small Zambian branch of an Italian NGO (under a different name), but thanks to support from Italy, over the years the organization grew and in 2011 we were supporting over 2500 students in 23 schools. Apart from sponsoring individual students, the organization focused on improving school infrastructures through building new classroom blocks and VIP (Ventilating Improved Pit) latrines, allowing for many schools to become rehabilitated. All buildings were constructed with support from the local community and then handed over to Ministry of Education.

In 2014 the Sponsorship program phased out and from 2011 to 2018 we worked in partnership with Fondazione ACRA in a project funded by the European Union Delegation to Zambia. 

The project focused on supporting 26 community schools in the Chipangali Constituency, Chipata Distract, Zambia. We supported them by improving infrastructure (through the construction of a new Teacher Recourse Centre, construction of 6 classroom block schools) and water & sanitation (the drilling of more than 25  boreholes and the construction of 34 VIP latrines, as well as SWASH (School Water Sanitation and Hygiene) training and training in borehole maintenance).

PNA in the last two years was involved in many different but still as important projects: Boreholes have been drilled in areas where water was scarce, and sometimes even absent in dry periods, they have worked on HIV prevention, built nutrition centres, schools and maternity clinics, worked with opticians from Italy to provide glasses for people in communities, and they provide support for disabled children by giving out wheelchairs and supporting them (via funds, and in other ways, to be able to attend school). This work has helped these people who are scattered throughout very rural areas and hard to reach places to have access to a better life, in accordance to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
