Nelson Area and Kaoma Alliance

The  Nelson Area and Kaoma Alliance (NAKA) is a community-based organisation creating sustaining links based on friendship and solidarity between Nelson, British Columbia and Kaoma in western Zambia.

NAKA works with community groups, individuals, schools and organisations in Nelson to create connections with and support for youth and community in Kaoma.  

For instance, NAKA works with schools in Nelson to create art exchanges and letter writing relationships with schools in Kaoma, and to put together fundraising ventures that support education in Kaoma.  NAKA mobilizes funds raised to improve access to fresh water, support education for orphans and vulnerable children, and support the core work of VIDEA's Zambian partner organisation, Women for Change.
