On the 21st April 2019 Bishop Edie Mulenga blessed the inception of Christopher Katongo Foundation.
Katongo has gone in the history books of Zambian Football as the first captain of the Chipolopolo to lead Zambia to AfCON glory in 2012.
Founded on the principles of morality, excellence and a caring heart, Christopher Katongo foundation is a non profitable organization which aims to bring together those with a heart to bring out the best out of those that are less privileged.
This is the initiative by our national hero, the captain of the 2012 Zambia Africa cup of nations winning team.
THE IDEA BEHIND THE INITIATIVE
Christopher Katongo believes that as an accomplished and a national hero, he has a duty to find ways of helping the less privileged and identifying the hidden talents. These can in turn contribute greatly to national development. For example, there are youths in rural areas who are talented in soccer but have no channel to showcase their talent.
Christopher Katongo’s foundation wants to solve that problem.
We believe that as much as we expect the government to solve all this, we as citizens have a duty towards each other. We can help each other as we as citizens, help each other to make a better Zambia comprised of enlightened, healthy, educated and productive society.
Christopher Katongo’s foundation wants to solve that problem
“To be a leading non-governmental organization in outreach services in talent identification, education support and HIV/AIDS interventions.”
“Setting standards for sustainable running of a non-governmental organization through sustained means of fundraising and strict accountability processes.”
