WHO ARE WE

Zambian Governance Foundation (ZGF) was established in 2009 with the aim of supporting Zambian civil society organisations (CSOs) in carrying our pro-poor policy work.

ZGF was initially conceived as a ‘basket-fund’ that would allow co-operating partners to reduce the transaction costs of supporting CSOs in Zambia.The initial project evolved to become a fully-fledged organisation as company limited by guarantee which is wholly Zambian that only funds Zambian CSOs.

ZGF’s vision is ‘Government is accountable and responsive to the needs of the poor and vulnerable’. ZGF operates on the belief that civil society has an important role to play in reducing poverty in Zambia.

Our Story

What was initially intended to be a programme grew into a fully-fledged Foundation, which has transformed communities across all 10 provinces of Zambia. Since being established in 2009, the Zambian Governance Foundation (ZGF) has built a rich history of supporting civil society to engage in policy processes.

ZGF’s focus has been on promoting government accountability by supporting civil society using grant-making coupled with capacity development. With an overarching goal of encouraging a more responsive state that implements policies which consider the vulnerable and margainalised, ZGF’s work has always been deliberately focused on strengthening communities.
