Welcome to Project COPE Zambia.
Our goal is to eliminate rural poverty in one generation without going through the carbon economy.
Gardening Sustainably Can Improve Lives and the Economy
We sent one of our COPE Members to South Africa last year to learn about new ways of sustainable gardening. We are now trying to find funding to get the information into the hands of our Cooperative in Chilupula. Wonder how it’s done? Check out Auldridge’s report Here
