Koinonia is a lay Christian community inspired by the life of the first Christians as reported in the Acts of the Apostles. Members of the community live as one family, sharing dreams, successes and failures, while always fostering stronger bonds of brotherhood.
Founded in 1980 in Bauleni, Lusaka, the Community is involved in various activities and programmes that aim to uplift the society within which Koinonia is based.
There is a sister community in Nairobi, Kenya, and another one in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan.
In its effort to counteract the economic and social evils bred by poverty and individualism, Koinonia gives priority to the marginalized members of the society, such as children in difficult circumstances, especially street children, women and young people from poor backgrounds.
