Empowering A Community in Zambia: Poultry Project


“Helping others starts with a small idea and a big heart. Together, we can turn small steps into life-changing leaps.”

In the heart of a Zambian community, the spark of change was ignited by Stephen Banda, a passionate second-year student at The Grace Institute Zambia (TGIZ). Through its transformative theological education program, TGIZ is not only shaping the lives of individuals like Stephen Banda but also leaving an indelible mark on the community at large.

Small Ideas, Big Impact

Stephen’s journey began with a simple idea—poultry farming. What started as a project tending to chickens blossomed into a beacon of hope for the less fortunate in his community.

Driven by a desire to uplift others, Stephen and his team decided to start a poultry initiative. The idea was to use the small profits to help other families start their own poultry projects. Their mission? To seek out the vulnerable, those without a starting point or a means to create their own opportunities.

Through dedication and collaboration with fellow students and partners, Stephen was able to help six individuals start their own chicken projects. The women who benefited from this now stand as entrepreneurs, contributing to their families and communities. Not only did it grant economic opportunities, but it also brought a newfound sense of purpose and faith. These women, once isolated, found solace in their local churches, becoming active members of their faith communities.
