ABM has long ties with Zambia which were revived in 2009 with formal agreements to work together.

The Church of the Province of Central Africa includes Botswana, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe. ABM partners with Zambia Anglican Council (ZAC) which is the development and social service arms of the Anglican Church in Zambia.

Our agreement with Zambia Anglican Council covers projects designed to empower and improve the lives of ordinary Zambians, mostly living in rural communities or in very poor settlements near the capital city. Women and young people are a particular focus of the Zambian projects.

St John’s Seminary is where the Church trains its priests, under its current principal, the Reverend Francis Mwansa. ABM funds have been used to support both clergy training and also income-generation training for clergy wives at the seminary.
