Markets

Get ready to get lost in the Zambian art markets. So many beautiful handcrafted products, from drums to chitenge fabrics, to bracelets, and to many more. Remember to negociate the price

Relax

Travelling is good, but we also need to relax at one point. We will go to a lodge where you can swim in the pool, we can grill and have a picnic, and just enjoy the great Zambian weather.

LEARN

Zambian Traditions

Learn the Zambian traditions, like making their national food, wearing their clothes, dancing like them, and much more. You will visit the home of some families who are looking forward to meeting you and showing you their values.

Zambian Student for 2 days

We want also to challenge you and let you be a student for 2 days. You will attend a class and have classmates, teachers, get grades, and so on.

New crafts, games, culture

You will experience new culture, new games, new ways of enjoying life by going to different places where the locals live – in other words, not only the tourist places.

TEACH

MUSIC PRODUCTION

If you like producing music, you can help the youth create their music. Help them with creating the lyrics, mixing the songs, etc so that they are ready to be taken out on different music platforms.

ENGLISH WORKSHOP

The youth of Zambia has very good communication skills in English, but their writing skills can be improved. Can you help them with that? 

IT WORKSHOP

Teach them how to use the Internet in an efficient way, or how to use the Microsoft package to create different documents needed for music production and other activities that we do in VOTS.

COVER DESIGN

If you have some creative skills, you can encourage the Vots youth to be creative as well, and teach them how to use different editorial softwares so that they can create covers for their songs.
