Your Zambia partner
The United Church of Zambia (UCZ)
UCZ is TWAM's 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 them.
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: UCZLusaka@twam.uk
To contact UCZ in Kitwe, please email: UCZKitwe@twam.uk
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.

To apply for support, complete the online application form
We do ask that you contribute towards the cost of preparing your tools, so please think about this when applying.
We do not charge for specific tools or tool kits, but we do ask that you contribute a small amount towards the UK cost of collecting, refurbishing and packing the tools we send to Africa.
The Online Application form above will show you the cost of the tools you are applying for. 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 the delivery of the tools you need.
Do you need books?
We no longer supply books, but if you would like to apply for books, please visit the charity Books2Africa which may be able to help you. Click here to find out more
