Chisekesi in southern Zambia was once a popular transport and agricultural hub.
During the 1980s, drought, disease and HIV hit the town, and it has since struggled to return to its previous status. In 2018, a diverse group, including a mechanic, policeman, health worker and retired government adviser, decided to launch a Cluster. Inspired by nearby Chabbs Cluster, they decided to see what they could do together, that they could not do apart, to create opportunities in the community.
WHAT THEY'RE DOING
Climate change is a threat to the region's maize crops, so they're importing and selling rice.
They're helping young people raise chickens and sell the meat and eggs at a local market.
MEET A MEMBER
There is nothing for young people to do here. No industry. No opportunities. We believe a Cluster is the answer.
