Our ServicesWhat we Do
Our community programs reflect the diverse nature of the “Zambian” abroad. From student graduation recognition to the tea party for Zambian women, we are dedicated to developing programs and hosting events that will power our community to move forward and shrive.
SCHOLARSHIP AND GRADUATE RECOGNITION PROGRAM
AZA recognizes graduating high school and college/ university every through its annual Tiyende Pamodzi Zambian Nite Dinner. Proceeds of this events go towards funding scholarships to college/ university students which are awarded in October during the Independence Celebration Event.
WOMEN EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM – AZA WOMEN WITH INFLUENCE TEA PARTY
The annual AZA Tea party is an opportunity for women in the community to come together for a social gathering and to learn about resources to improve their well-being. Proceeds from this event go towards empowering a woman or women through charitable contributions or towards a scholarship fund.
KIDS SOCCER INITIATIVE – #TUPOLOPOLO
The Atlanta Tupolopolo initiative was put together to create a space where the kids from the community can come together and get to mingle with fellow kids of Zambian decent outside of the typical birthday party setting. In addition to that, while promoting camaraderie among the children they will also be developing their motor skills as young athletes, fine tuning their communication skills, team work, trust, reliability and self confidence to mention just a few takeaways. On the grander scale of things, the initiative promotes physical activity among the younger youths and also helps scale back the national numbers when it comes to tackling child obesity today. And all this will be done in a fun, clean and playful way.
BROTHER’S KEEPER SEMINAR – Empower Personal And Professional Development
The Association of Zambians in Atlanta (AZA) is dedicated to empowering the local community with a variety of monthly and year-round events and is excited to announce the annual My Brother’s Keeper Men’s Lunch and Learn Seminar.

If you want to get involved as a business, you can host a fundraiser, sponsor any of our programs or simply make a financial contribution to AZA. Our programs depend heavily on individual volunteers and support from local and international organizations.
