The name of our community Foundation is TUSEKWILE IMITI IKULA, which translates into English as “cultivating children’s potential”, and is abbreviated as TIIF. As a human-centered NGO, registered with the relevant authorities in Zambia, TIIF is a non-political, not-for-profit, non-tribal and non-religious organization working for social development of vulnerable and less privileged people.
The foundation operates on four key thematic areas, namely education, health and wellness, water and sanitation, and improving livelihoods. Education is one of the primary areas of focus for the Tusekwile Imiti Ikula Foundation. The organization recognizes the importance of education in empowering the community and breaking the cycle of poverty. Therefore, the foundation provides scholarships, school supplies, and other resources to disadvantaged children to ensure that they have access to quality education.
Health and wellness are also critical areas of concern for the Tusekwile Imiti Ikula Foundation. The organization works towards providing access to basic healthcare services to communities in the Isoka District. The foundation also conducts health awareness campaigns on mental health, Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR) and many other health related issues.
Improving livelihoods is another critical aspect of the foundation's work. The organization seeks to empower communities in the Isoka District by providing business training, startup capital, and other resources to help people start their own businesses. By doing so, it aims to reduce poverty and increase economic opportunities in the region.
