Meet The Team

The Arise Team is made up of Zambian and British staff who work closely together to best support the guardians and orphans in the Arise project. 

The entire team take part in weekly visits into the community to see families supported by Arise. Nissi Chama co-ordinates the project and Lister and Agnes run the office. The team runs the weekly guardians’ meetings, our Foundations for Farming project and also run the weekly youth club. The team meet regularly to pray for families supported by the project.
