About People's Action Forum
People's Action Forum (PAF) is an indigenous non-profit, non-governmental organisation; it is an open denominational, non-discriminatory society working with members of the rural communities where PAF carries out its activities.
Working with whole communities especially women and children PAF's approach is to help local groups take their development into their own hands.
PAF was founded in 1994 by a concerned group of social workers, educators, lawyers, bankers, health specialists, theologians and administrators, among them former Zambian Supreme Court Justice Mrs. Florence Mumba, who also served as the organisation's first Chairperson of the Board. We work in seven districts of Zambia:-
Chadiza, Chipata, Mambwe ~Eastern Province
Mazabuka, Monze ~Southern Province
Mumbwa, Namayani ~ Central Province
In 2012 we embarked on a new strategic period in which emphasis continued to be placed on uplifting the conditions of the rural poor. Through the literacy and livelihood programme we aim to ensure that they are provided with relevant knowledge, skills and competencies that they can use to influence development processes.
