We are currently putting together our dates for 2020 Volunteer teams.  Please email us if you have specific questions. 

What to expect on
an expedition

We believe a little hope and a lot of work can change the world. If you agree, and we hope you do, join us this summer for a volunteer and cultural immersion expedition in Lusaka, Zambia.

Your program fee includes the following:

  • Transportation to and from the Lusaka Airport

  • Modest accommodations

  • Simple family style meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner)

  • Transportation throughout the expedition

  • Two (2) I Am Zambia T-shirts

VOLUNTEER

TEAMS

I Am Zambia teams are diverse. We recruit volunteers of all ages and nationalities, which makes every team experience as unique as the people on it.

FUNDRAISING

Do you want to join us in Zambia, but you're struggling to come up with trip fees? Try fundraising for your program fee! Contact us for information and how-tos.

CULTURAL IMMERSION

EXPERIENCE

A cultural immersion experience is not a vacation...it’s better! And busier. Expect to be visiting, interacting with and working beside local Zambians all day, every day.

ACCOMODATIONS

& TRANSPORTATION

Caring is sharing. You'll be living and moving in close quarters with your fellow volunteers, so be prepared to share your room and bathroom with others on the expedition.

AIR

TRAVEL

You’re responsible for your expenses, but we’re happy to help you coordinate your travel plans. We encourage volunteers from similar geographical areas to travel together.  

LEISURE

TRAVEL

Some volunteers opt to extend their trips so they can soak up more of Zambia’s culture and beauty. We can help identify excursions and connect you with other travelers.

TRAVEL & MEDICAL

EVACUATION INSURANCE

Medical Evacuation Insurance is required for each volunteer. Travel insurance is optional,  but recommended

PASSPORT

& VISA

You’ll need to buy an entry Visa for either $50 (single entry) or $80 (double entry) and have a valid U.S. passport FOR AT LEAST SIX MONTHS beyond your departure date.

VACCINES & MEDICAL

INFORMATION

The CDC's website is the best collection of up-to-date materials on vaccines and health concerns for travel to Zambia.
