Quality health care begins with quality practitioners. In rural Zambia, the need for experienced and well-trained healthcare professionals is great. However, it can be hard for students to access medical training. The Brethren in Christ Church of Zambia is working to meet this educational need in the Southern Province.
Established by the Zambian BIC Church in 2019, Zambian Christian University (ZACU) aims to offer medical degrees at a new campus near Macha Mission Hospital. Several currently vacant buildings have been identified as the sight for the new campus, but major repairs and renovations are needed to prepare the buildings for use by the university.
Join us in providing critically needed medical training in Zambia by renovating the new Macha campus of Zambian Christian University. We look forward to the day when graduates will provide medical care in their communities, sharing the Gospel and furthering the growth of the church.
ZACU is a multi-campus university that provides higher education and training in a Christian environment and currently offers degrees in business, education, information technology, and the arts. The Macha campus will add bachelor’s degrees in nursing and clinical medicine to ZACU’s list of programs.
The buildings that comprise the proposed ZACU campus in Macha are nearly twenty years old. Project funds will be used to renovate existing buildings, developing a functional campus with classrooms and dormitories that can accommodate up to 150 students.
By giving to the University Campus Expansion project, you will help students receive a Christ-centered education that will enable them to impact their communities through quality medical care for years to come.
