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.
