FPZ Community Centre
The construction of this community facility is now complete and it is hoped that
a mains electricity supply can be provided shortly. This will be the centre
for FPZ in Eastern Province and will provide meeting facilities
for local organisations such as a youth club, football and
netball clubs and sewing groups, as well as an outreach
location for the Nyamphande Clinic to hold talks and seminar
Ladies in the village have established
a sewing group and are looking forward hopefully to having electricity
and using all the machines which have been donated.’

Work is progressing on the construction
of a library in Chipata in Eastern Province and will be
sited in the new headquarters of the Anglican Diocese of
Eastern Zambia. It will be established and managed under
the authority of the Bishop of Eastern Diocese, which is
currently Bishop William Mchombo, and become a public facility
for the local area to be a memorial to Canon Cyril Mudford
who was an Anglican priest in Zambia 1946 - 1966, and a
renowned educationalist. He managed schools in an area of
Eastern Province and also founded a hostel for 30 Zambian
boys, called Holy Cross, which encouraged boys to be educated
for vocations such teaching, the priesthood, medical work
etc. Many of the boys who passed through Holy Cross went
into government posts after Independence, and some became
ambassadors for their country.
Some books have been
donated already, mainly for use by the Priests of the area,
and FPZ has been asked to enable the establishment of the
library with the necessary shelves, furniture etc. The furniture
and shelving would be made by local craftsmen. On completion
of the library a book fund will be set up.
continues to be a great benefit to the community.
Ngoli Education Project
This five year education project is now in its third year for students……etc.
The pictures show children from the village school and the current students who
are all doing well.
Equipment With the help of generous donors FPZ has been
able to supply five groups in the Nyamphande district of
Zambia with much needed sets of irrigation equipment consisting
of pumps, hoses and sprinklers which will overcome the uncertainty
of the rains.
It will also make it possible to grow
crops outside the rainy season providing a wider range of
crops which will reduce reliance on the staple crop of maize
and give chance of an improved diet while any surplus can
be sold in the market as a cash crop.
