- Where we work? 

We work in the city of Kitwe, the Republic of Zambia. Zambia, is a landlocked country in Southern Africa, neighbouring the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Tanzania to the north-east, Malawi to the east, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia to the south, and Angola to the west. The capital city is Lusaka, in the south-central part of Zambia. The population is concentrated mainly around Lusaka in the south and the Copperbelt Province to the northwest, the core economic hubs of the country. Kitwe is the second largest city in terms of size and population in Zambia. With a population of 504,194 (2010 census provisional) Kitwe is one of the most developed commercial and industrial areas in the nation, alongside Ndola and Lusaka. It has a complex of mines on its north-western and western edges. Zambia is renowned as a doyen of peace in the region. Zambians are generally friendly people always ready to receive foreigners with a smile and of course the shaking of hands. Visitors to this peaceful country are always advised to boil their drinking water and sleep under mosquito nets if they are to avoid contracting diseases such as cholera and malaria respectively.   

- Our history

Beautiful Gate Zambia was established in 2003 by Zambian couple, Bill and Thelma Kaping'a. Upon graduating from their discipleship training school (DTS) at Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Muizenberg, Cape Town the Kaping'as immediately joined Beautiful Gate South Africa. After serving as volunteers for a couple of months, the couple returned home to pioneer Beautiful Gate Zambia. Initially, the project operated from their two-bedroomed house in Ndeke Township, Kitwe. Two years later, funds were sourced to build a proper school at its current location in the outskirts of the Township and the rest as they say is history.

    Social Impact

    Our social project has generally impacted and changed the community and indeed our city in a significant way.

     Whereas there has been improved food security and hence the reduction of levels of poverty within the community, a number of erstwhile street kids have been rehabilitated and reintegrated back into society. 

    In a nutshell, 2000 young people have 'graduated' from our school over the years and gone on to be more productive and earn a better living. Apart from this, over 300 widows and grandparents have been empowered with different practical skills and can now enjoy a better quality of life. This has obviously seen the improvement of buying power for most households and ultimately spiraled economic development not only within the community but the country as a whole.
