Kelowna Zambia Partnership

VIDEA's group in Kelowna began in 2007 as part of the Breakthrough for Africa initiative which coupled like-sized communities in a sister-city relationship. This was officially recognized on February 11, 2008 when the Kelowna City Council passed a unanimous motion to name the community of Senanga an Official Sister City of Kelowna.

KaZ has been instrumental in supporting a basket weaving co-op in the District of Senanga in Zambia through selling the beautiful baskets at markets and fairs throughout Kelowna all year round. The KaZ group is also proud to support education initiatives through the Orphans and Vulnerable Children Program. KaZ is also known around VIDEA as extraordinary fundraisers - always the first to lend a hand and raise some funds for projects and programmes needing a bit of a boost.
