A Chance For Change Foundation

A Chance for Change Foundation is a non-profit organization working to alleviate extreme poverty in rural Zambia through entrepreneurship and innovation. We work closely with the communities we serve to create and implement solutions that build self-reliance, financial inclusion, and resilience.

Mission & Vision

We believe that by supporting the creation and growth of businesses, we will curb the high unemployment levels, which stand at 12.2 per cent and the youth unemployment rate standing at 22.63 per cent reported by International Labor Organization (ILO) in 2020. A Chance for Change Foundation will always put the marginalized at heart to raise funds for their startup businesses or business expansion with a flexible repayment structure. Our Business Incubation Programme provides entrepreneurs with a knowledge-filled environment to successfully develop their businesses.

We strive to support the growth and success of entrepreneurs and startups through the delivery of world-class incubation and acceleration programmes that are accompanied by funding. A Chance for Change Foundation supports the environment for innovative local enterprises to sustain and scale up, assisting long-term economic development and increasing sustainable employment in Zambia.

Our vision is to see a Zambia free from poverty where marginalized families can provide basic needs for themselves and meet their future needs for sustainable development.

Our mission is to identify and support businesses by working with communities to build their capacity to generate income, acquire assets, and create jobs with the goal of ending poverty.

Our Core Values


We believe in empowering individuals and communities by providing them with the tools, resources, and opportunities to uplift themselves out of poverty. We strive to enable them to become self-reliant and take control of their future.


We value collaboration and recognize that sustainable change requires collective effort. We actively engage with communities, local partners, and stakeholders to co-create solutions and leverage collective knowledge, expertise, and resources.


We embrace innovation as a means to tackle the complex challenges of poverty alleviation. We encourage creativity, adaptability, and the exploration of new ideas and approaches to generate sustainable and impactful solutions.


We uphold the highest standards of integrity, transparency, and accountability in all our operations. We are committed to responsible and ethical practices, ensuring that resources are utilized efficiently and effectively to maximize their impact on poverty reduction.


We recognize that overcoming poverty is a long-term endeavor that requires perseverance and resilience. We support individuals and communities in developing resilience to withstand and recover from challenges, while also fostering a culture of resilience within our organization, adapting and learning from setbacks to continuously improve our work.
