Sustainability of FZCC and French Embassy Support to Zambia
In order to make sure that both the French and Zambian business communities support to Zambia is sustainable, the partners
intend to help Lightfoot Zambia put in place other long term activities such as :

• setting up several small groups of tailors expanding the capacity of masks for domestic consumption, corporate and export
markets.

• training more tailors in different localities of Lusaka.
• buying 30 machines which will eventually belong to the benefiting communities.
• the trained tailors will be linked to local NGOs to help them be able to eventually pay off their machines by making masks, and
then be self sufficient to open their own small tailoring business.

• the donators are not obliged to donate money, they can also give their time and skills to train local people to make masks and
different products. Then, they can also donate sewing material : machine …
