  • Our Mission

    Kaloko Trust works to relieve poverty and improve lives in rural communities of Zambia

    We believe in the power of partnership.

    Kaloko Trust works with local partners and communities to improve access to sufficient food, water, health, education and income for some of the world’s most vulnerable people, through effective, appropriate and sustainable development projects.


    We have been working to relieve poverty in the Luansobe area of the Copperbelt Region in rural Zambia since 1989 and believe that long-term sustainable development can only occur where the issues that cause poverty are addressed through an integrated approach, harnessing the power of partnership.

    Which communities we work with

    Luansobe area of the Copperbelt

    Kaloko Trust works in Luansobe/Kashitu, a remote rural area in the Copperbelt Province of Zambia. It lies 250km north of Zambia’s capital, Lusaka, and its population of approximately 37,000 is spread over small farms across 1,200 square kilometres. Transport is difficult, with the area served largely by a network of winding dirt tracks. Basic services are poor, with no central provision of safe drinking water, and few schools or health centres. The nearest city, Ndola, lies about 70km NE from the Kaloko campus. All Kaloko staff live in the rural community around Luansobe.

Kaloko is committed to protecting your privacy. The Kaloko Trust UK charity gathers and holds information about you so we can communicate with you: to keep you informed about our activities, thank you for donations, and ask for further support with projects.
We keep confidential all personal information you give us, but we share current class sponsorship data, including addresses of sponsors, with one of the Kaloko Zambia project officers when they need it to send out updates on sponsored classes three times a year, and we send basic information to HMRC for Gift Aid claims. We don’t share information about you with other organisations for marketing purposes.
You can ask to see what data we hold on you or can ask to be removed from our mailing lists at any time. If anyone wishes to update the information we hold or wishes to be removed from our databases they can let us know and we will make the appropriate changes quickly. Incorrect information on people is changed whenever we are given updated information. You can opt out of future emails by simply emailing ‘unsubscribe’ as a response or in the subject line.
We aim to keep your information secure and only hold information for as long as necessary to pursue our charitable objectives and meet legal requirements. You have a right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office if you think there is a problem with the way we are handling your data.
We may amend this privacy policy from time to time with an up to date version posted on the Kaloko website.
