About Project Concern Zambia (PCZ)

Project Concern Zambia (PCZ) was registered in 2019 as   a local Zambian independent organization. The formation of PCZ was a culmination of an intentional process by Project Concern International (an American International NGO that operated in Zambia for over 20 years between 1996 and 2020) to transition the management of its HIV/AIDS and related health programs in Zambia, once mature, to an independent locally registered entity that is governed and managed by Zambians.  PCZ work focuses on contributing to the achievement and sustenance of HIV epidemic control and addressing the upstream vulnerabilities that impede progress towards this achievement such as poverty, gender inequity, and addressing emerging epidemics that might further hinder progress such as COVID-19.  PCZ collaborates with grassroot community-led organizations and the local government, to reach targeted sub populations such as Children/Adolescents Living with HIV (C/ALHIV) or at elevated risk of HIV acquisition, children/adolescents who are survivors of sexual violence, children of Female Sex Workers (FSW), and female caregivers of all the targeted vulnerable children and adolescents.

PCZ seeks to recruit two drivers; one to be based in Kabwe and the other one in Mkushi.
