Education in Zambia

Education is fundamental to building a long term, economically sustainable future for Africa, independent from aid. The Hazelhurst Trust is supporting projects that give communities the wherewithal to build schools themselves, using their own skills and labour.

Changing communities

The Hazelhurst Trust has supported a wide range of community groups that are taking responsibility for the problems in their own communities. The trustees support to the principles behind Asset Based Community Development (ABCD – seeĀ http://www.abcdinstitute.org/) that builds on the skills and talents in the community, rather than depending on external agencies.

The arts can bring communities together and give individuals self belief by enabling them to express their thoughts and ideas. The Trust has supported a range of local organisations that use arts to engage excluded young people, prisoners and disabled.
