Kelowna Zambia Partnership

VIDEA's group in Kelowna started in 2007 as part of the Breakthrough for Africa initiative which coupled like-sized communities in a sister-city relationship. This was officially recognized when the Kelowna City Council passed a unanimous motion to name the community of Senanga an Official Sister City of Kelowna in February, 2008. The Kelowna Zambia Partnership (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. KaZ is also proud to support education initiatives through the Orphans and Vulnerable Children Program.
