The Livingstone Initiative

We are a not-for-profit organisation based in Edinburgh. We work in Zambia, where we have set up a Medical Exchange between Zambia and Glasgow and the West of Scotland; we have created an international exchange of cultural information between schools in Zambia and schools in Scotland and we are currently building the first secondary school for girls in Chama District, NE Zambia – a very remote, rural region, where currently there is a prevalence of early pregnancies and child marriage and where girls have little or no access to education beyond basic primary school. We are also helping communities to boost their local economy by raising awareness through tourism.
