UCZ is TWAMs partner in Zambia and they will unload the shipping container containing your tools when it arrives. They will contact you when your tools are ready for collection and store them until you collect.
There will be no charge for collecting your tools, but a storage charge may apply if you do not collect your tools within three months of them contacting you.
You will be able to collect your tools from either:
UCZ Synod head office in Lusaka or UCZ St Luke's Church in Kitwe
To contact UCZ in Lusaka please email: UCZ
To contact UCZ in Kitwe please email: UCZ
You do not have to type the email in bold or uppercase, we have done this here just to make it easier for you to read.
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic we have had to reduce the number of containers we are shipping to Africa and as a result have had no choice but to suspend all tool applications. Therefore, we will not be accepting any applications for Zambia until 1 September 2021. Any applications received in this period will not accepted or processed.
We continue to send out containers and when the waiting list reduces we will start accepting applications again. We are sorry that we have had to make this decision, but it is necessary for the long term support of groups across Africa.

Think about the cost of shipping
TWAM provides tools free of charge, but we do ask you to help towards the cost of shipping those tools to Zambia. The Online Application form above will show you the cost of shipping your tools. Before completing your application please think about the cost and whether you can afford it. If you cannot, please reduce the number of tools you are applying for at this time to a cost you can afford. You can apply again another time for more tools. By applying for less tools rather than waiting to raise a larger amount you will not have to wait so long for delivery of the tools you need.
Two small orders will not cost you any more than one big order, so think about applying for just what you can afford now.
