About Koinonia Zambia

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.

    Sudan: Nuba Emergency

    Who remembers the Nuba people of Southern Kordofan? Once again they are alone—trapped in the middle of a war. The area which includes the Nuba Mountains is part of Sudan, and it borders the newly independent South Sudan. The place names of this little known geography are strange and confusing. Beyond the names are a people who number about a million caught in the middle of two wars: the war between Sudan and South Sudan for control of the oil fields and the war against the Nuba people themselves because the majority supported South Sudan independence. They fought along side the freedom fighters of South Sudan, but at the negotiating table were denied the possibility of self-determination.
