Rainbow Africa is a Christian charity committed to supporting communities through provision of education, healthcare, training and employment.

We work in partnership with local churches and community groups to present a practical demonstration of the Gospel in action within the locality.

Established in 1996 in Livingstone, Zambia, we are a team of trustees, workers and volunteers helping those in need. Over the last 20 years we have seen tremendous growth for Rainbow Trust Africa and we are grateful for all that we have seen. We have been blessed with donations, gifts and prayers and this has allowed us to transform many lives across Zambia. Our conviction is that we would see the goodness of God exemplified through ourselves and our work, and that through him we could make a change to the lives of those in need across Zambia.

We run a number of different projects at Rainbow Africa in order that we might offer something for all people. All of these projects can be seen on our website, and if you feel encouraged by any of them then please visit the donation page where you can help us make a difference to people’s lives. Recent updates and specific stories can be found in our newsletters on the website and in the blog posts in the ‘news’ menu.

A message from the Director

On behalf the trustees and all of the 80 staff here at Rainbow Trust Africa in Livingstone & Muzoka, we wish to thank everyone for the prayers and generous financial support received over recent years.

During a relatively short period much has been achieved and many local communities in Southern Zambia have been pleased to receive substantial assistance. Significant development has taken place through church planting, educational and health care provision, feeding the elderly and orphaned, providing for the homeless as well as delivering urgently needed food aid to remote villages.

We are all most encouraged and blessed to know that we are joined together in a common purpose. We are privileged to represent you here and want to sincerely thank you all.

May God richly bless you,

Ewart Crowther
