Welcome to

Chisekesi Cluster

THE STORY

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

Mechanics Training

 

They've so far trained five young unemployed men to become car mechanics

Food Security

 

Climate change is a threat to the region's maize crops, so they're importing and selling rice.

Poultry Farming

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.

Nimoy Gerry is a local mechanic with a heart for his community. 

  

After attending an Arukah Network international forum in 2017, he decided to mobilise others to start a Cluster.
