U.S. Peace Corps Swears in 20 New Volunteers



ON November 9, the U.S. government through Peace Corps Zambia swore into service 20 new Volunteers from the United States following 11 weeks of training in technical skills, language, and cross-cultural understanding.

The Volunteers will work with community members in rural areas of Zambia for two years on locally-prioritized education and health programs in the Central, Eastern, Luapula, Northern, Muchinga, Northwestern, Southern, and Western provinces. Eleven of the 20 volunteers will work under the Community Health Empowerment Project (CHEP) and nine under the Rural Education Development (RED) Project. CHEP Volunteers work to increase the knowledge and skills of women to adopt practices that contribute to a healthy pregnancy, prevent malaria and new HIV infections, and improve equitable care, support, and treatment for people living with HIV and AIDS. RED Volunteers build the capacity of teachers to use gender-equitable practices in the classroom, improve students’ English skills, and plan and teach adult literacy classes.

In addition to their core responsibilities, all 20 Volunteers will provide HIV/AIDS prevention assistance in their communities through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). This ceremony was especially significant as it marks the first time that Volunteers will serve in Western Province.

The Minister of Health, Hon. Sylvia Masebo was the guest of honor at the ceremony. Permanent Secretary Joel Kamoko from the Ministry of Education; Western Province Provincial Minister Kapelwa Mbangweta; Inunda Meimanene and Inunda Namamba from the Western Province representing the Litunga, King of Barotseland; and His Royal Highness Chief Chamuka VI of the Lenje people were special guests. U.S. Embassy Zambia Chargé d’Affaires Linnisa Wahid officially swore in the 20 new Volunteers.

Peace Corps works in Zambia at the invitation of the Zambian government. Since the first Peace Corps Volunteers arrived in Zambia in 1994, more than 2,500 Volunteers have lived and worked in rural communities throughout the country. Zambia has traditionally hosted the largest number of Peace Corps Volunteers in the world.

    First off I would like to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    mind prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my
    thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Thank you!

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured
    I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading
    links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?

    My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel
    we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested
    feel free to send me an email. I look forward to
    hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

Government secures an equity partner for Mopani Copper Mines



FOLLOWING the ongoing negotiations to revamp operations at Mopani Copper Mines on the Copperbelt, Government has finally secured an equity partner.

The Equity partner being International Resources Holdings (IRH) an affiliate of Abu Dhabi Conglomerate International holding was selected after an extensive process.

The process was undertaken by ZCCM-IH, together with Rose Child and Company, a company based in South Africa.

In carrying out the process of revamping the mine, which started last year in June, the process focussed on assessing Mopani’s balance sheet due to high level indebtedness and also finding a suitable partner for sustainable development.

Announcing the development, Mines and Minerals Development Minister Paul Kabuswe said the selection of an equity partner will help restore life back into Mopani.

“I wish to announce and I am so glad and exited to announce that after extensive and thorough process, Government through the directors of ZCCM-IH have appointed a strategic equity partner for Mopani. The preferred partner selected is International Resource Holding Limited an affiliate of Abu Dhabi Conglomerate International holding company,” he said.

He said the partner selected is expected to inject funds into Mopani to stabilise short term work requirements, completion of the mine projects and unlock its potential.

Mr Kabuswe also stated that the equity partner will also reset the existing relationship with Glencore.

He further added that other details of the development at Mopani will be announced in due course when signing of the deal is being made.
