Zambian Governance Foundation (ZGF) was established in 2009 with the aim of supporting Zambian civil society organisations (CSOs) in carrying our pro-poor policy work. ZGF was initially conceived as a ‘basket-fund’ that would allow co-operating partners to reduce the transaction costs of supporting CSOs in Zambia. The initial project evolved to become a fully-fledged organisation as company limited by guarantee which is wholly Zambian that only funds Zambian CSOs. ZGF’s vision is ‘Government is accountable and responsive to the needs of the poor and vulnerable’. ZGF operates on the belief that civil society has an important role to play in reducing poverty in Zambia. In order to achieve our mission ‘to strengthen the role of civil society in pro-poor policy engagement by increasing access to capacity enhancement resources and other support mechanisms’ ZGF has four main areas of work: Grants Capacity DevelopmentLearning & SharingActive Citizenship – growing the demand for Social Accountability
