Who we are

Abana Afrika is a youth-led non-profit organisation operating in Zambia that works to empower Zambian youth from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Our mission is to educate, empower and mentor the next generation of purpose-driven Zambian youth who are equipped with skills and knowledge to create positive change in their personal lives and communities. We aim to achieve our mission by providing College Mentorship, Personal Development and Entrepreneurial Leadership training. By 2040, we hope to build a community of over 10000 young Zambians who are self-driven leaders, entrepreneurial and equipped with the necessary skills and tools to lead positive change in our country Zambia. 

Our programs


To ensure that we have a generation of educated Zambian youth, our mentorship program mentors high school students in readiness for college. We identify top achieving students with exceptional extracurricular activities and leadership qualities from various schools around Zambia and prepare them for the college application process. This program increases the chances of entrance into top universities and ensures that students have applications that stand out in a competitive pool.


Our Entrepreneurial Leadership program seeks to empower young people with ethical entrepreneurial leadership skills by providing programs that focus on entrepreneurship and leadership.We facilitate workshops, masterclasses and one on one sessions to share tools and tips that young Zambias can leverage to start their own entrepreneurial journeys.


Through a holistic approach to youth empowerment, our personal development program offers all rounded character development programs on self awareness, professional or career development and mentorship, mental health awareness and sexual reproductive health rights education and advocacy.
