UK grant to support Zambia's development

Over the next three years the UK will provide 58 million pounds ($90.3 million) to Zambia. Funding will focus on health, education, water and social security development projects.The U.K Department for International Development (DfID) is expected to spend some 25 million pounds of the total grant in 2012. Aside from the identified priority areas, DfID is set to increase its investments in the country’s agriculture and infrastructure sectors.
According to Mike Hammond, head of the local DfID office, “[t]he money will ensure that an additional 54,000 rural people have access to safe water by 2014, keep an additional 50,000 children in school every year and provide an additional 42,000 households with access to electricity by 2015”.
This grant is part of the United Kingdom’s pledge to spend some 235 million pounds in development aid to Zambia from 2011-2015.
