Community empowerment through tourism
A warm welcome to Project Luangwa
At the heart of Project Luangwa is the belief in empowering communities through the benefits of tourism
South Luangwa is dazzling in its beauty and serenity, and is the most densely wildlife populated area in Zambia. While the sound of monkeys chittering in the treetops, or the echoing roar of a lion signalling dusk, are both magical and captivating, the relationship between all of the Luangwa’s inhabitants is not without challenges.
On establishing Project Luangwa in 2010, some of the valley’s tour operators realised the need to empower communities and show the incredible benefits that wildlife and an unspoiled habitat brings to the region. By using a portion of the proceeds from each visitor, Project Luangwa seeks to reaffirm the importance of tourism in action.
Our Mission Statement is Community empowerment through the benefits of tourism, by improving education and gender equality in the Luangwa Valley
Sponsorship, Construction and Digital Learning
At the heart of Project Luangwa is improving educational standards in marginalised communities through supporting schools and deepening educational impact.
Youth Clubs, Supporting Local Women and Menstrual Hygiene
Rural children need to believe in themselves, regardless of their gender or background. We help to empower young adults through our Youth Clubs, and assist local girls with our menstrual hygiene programme. We also help women through our craft shop, and reduce deforestation and respiratory health problems through our Eco-Stoves.
