The Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) Synod of Zambia was constituted in 1984. It was originally part of CCAP Synod Livingstonia, but at the time of independence of Malawi the Synod of Zambia was split off and continued its work as CCAP Synod of Zambia. Since the constitution of CCAP Zambia, the Synod has contributed to church growth, education, health care, water, and HIV/AIDS. The Education Department now runs 25 schools, 3 day care centers and 1 theological college.

The CCAP Zambia Education Program aims to realize an improvement in the implementation of the right to education for children in the Lundazi district, in the Eastern Province of Zambia. To strengthen CCAP schools’ capacity to deliver basic education services, CCAP and WSN will organize 2 construction projects in each program year, including 7 two-classrooms blocks, 11 teacher houses, 4 toilets, and 2 girls' changing rooms. CCAP also plans to work with 15 schools to select and train 85 facilitators for Auntie Stella.

Through this program 1,750 children will benefit from an improved learning and teaching environment while 3,000 (partly overlapping) children aged 13 to 18 will for be better able to protect themselves against HIV/AIDS.
