Zambia is among the many Countries that have been affected by the Corona Virus which has claimed lives in many Countries around world and Solwezi District has not been spared from the pandemic. 

Most of the poor People especially vulnerable women in Zambia live on less than a $ per day and COVID-19 has just worsened the situation. Women are the most affected people in the communities. In Solwezi, all the families have been confined in their homes spending the little income raised from their small business. Therefore, COVID-19 has left families in Solwezi without food, soap and other essential basic needs such as medical bills etc which are cardinal for human survival.

The loss of business and employment opportunities due to COVID-19 has has caused many vulnerable women to be involved in prostitution and other illicit activities to enable them earn a living which compromises their human dignity.

The COVID-19 relief fund is providing revolving fund to vulnerable women keeping orphans and vulnerable children to start a small home based business that would help them recover from major negative impacts of COVID-19. Vulnerable women are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. Women in Solwezi feeds households and helps children attend school and meet health costs.

The goal of this project is to help 500 vulnerable women recover and sustain families from COVID-19 shocks. Micro entrepreneurship is key in attaining local development and improved income at household level. Since this shall be a revolving fund, many people shall benefit and the majority beneficiaries will remain with a capital which they have lost during the Country's lock down. All the beneficiaries will also be trained in micro business management etc. When we empower a woman we have empowered the whole family hence developing this initiative to respond to COVID-19 economic impacts.

The organization has so far disbursed ZMW 14,000 to 27 vulnerable women in Solwezi District of Zambia.
