WE started our journey in January 2011 after having impressively completed 82% our planned tasks the previous year. With such a yardstick in mind, 2011 was going to be a tough year when we tried to raise our game even higher. It was going to be a year when both the quality of our works and their impacts are evaluated to ensure that the work we are doing is adding value to the Zambian communities and the world at large.
As a result in mid 2011 we commissioned a baseline survey that sought to plot our presence in Zambia. This baseline survey also sought to identify which programmes were being effectively implemented and which of these had a high impact among the Zambian communities. In January 2011 we started the year by introducing women literacy classes for the many disadvantaged women
These women could neither read nor write and as result could not benefit from the many literacy works available to other citizens with reading and writing skills.The year also saw us consolidate our lobbying and advocacy efforts in the areas of social and economic justice, and in the areas of natural resource management. Our work took us into the mining areas where we sought explanations from both government and the mine owners why the communities around the mines where not better off in the era of increased mining profits than they were before.We called for equitable contribution of the mines to the national treasury through mines taxes.
Finally we ensured that Zambians have credible general elections on September 20th.
