Impact One Initiative is transforming lives through the power of education...One school. One teacher. One child at a time.

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. "
– Nelson Mandela


Impact One Initiative is a nonprofit organization providing vulnerable children in Zambia hope and a future through education. We believe that education has the potential to break the chains of oppression faced by many in Zambia. But too many children in Zambia never have the opportunity for a quality, life-changing education.

Based in Lusaka, Impact One Initiative is equipping existing community schools to more effectively educate their students to impact their families and transform their community. We are giving untrained, volunteer teachers the resources and skills they so desperately need to become excellent at raising up tomorrow’s leaders.



In much of the world, we forget the power of education. It has become so routine that we take for granted its significance. But in the developing world, the impact is striking.


A community school is a grassroots solution to the need for education in developing African countries. They teach the best they can, but usually without books, supplies, and training.
