AAH Zambia has been implementing the Urban Refugee Project in Lusaka through provision of social, health and logical services to vulnerable urban refugees with an aim of improving the livelihood of some of the most vulnerable population groups among them the chronically ill, elderly, single mothers, unaccompanied and separated children and the disabled (special cases), SGBV survivors and People living with HIV/AIDS among others. This project has working staff in Meheba refugee settlement and Mayukwayukwa refugee settlement located in Solwezi and Mongu respectively. Furthermore, AAH Zambia has also been implementing The Albert Einstein German Academic Refugee Initiative Fund (DAFI), funded by the Federal Government of Germany and managed by UNHCR, which aims at enhancing self-reliance of refugees by providing them with an academic qualification geared towards employment including self-employment. Refugees, some emerging from Solwezi, Mongu, Kitwe, Monza and Lusaka have been trained in livelihood programmes such as catering, tailoring, carpentry, and plumbing through vocational training.
