Background Information
Founded in 1958 by Sweden’s cooperative movement, We Effect is a development organization active in over 20 countries across Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Africa. Our Southern Africa operations cover Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and Malawi, focusing on sustainable rural development and adequate housing. We collaborate with member-based organizations, empowering women and men living in poverty through a human rights-based approach. Our work emphasizes securing equal rights and access to productive resources for women in partner organizations like farmer groups, housing cooperatives, and savings associations. Our values include respect, transparency, and togetherness.

The We Effect Zambia Country Office is implementing a Women’s Economic Empowerment Project in nine districts across three provinces (Southern, Eastern, and in Western Province) to enhance women’s participation in agricultural value chains. This initiative aims to affirm women’s contributions, uphold dignity, and promote gender equality.
