In partnership with the ImagineNations Group, Friends of Zambia has led four successful trips to Zambia, on which over 60 leaders in business, civil society, and philanthropy from the United States and Europe have participated. The goal of these trips is to promote business and charitable investment by connecting corporations and individuals to opportunities and needs in Zambia.
On the November 2005 trip to Zambia, Friends of Zambia and ImagineNations joined with the Center for Corporate Citizenship at Boston College. The Center works with global corporations to help them define, plan and operationalize their corporate citizenship.
