From its inception, Abantu Zambia has been able to count on the precious help of many volunteers, young Europeans fascinated by a real North/South dialog, and wishing to devote personal time to the projects.

They organise their own fund collections with friends in Belgium, thus becoming true partners in building or accompanying the project they have chosen. It is especially on site in Zambia that they demonstrate their energy and good sense.

The volunteers who have already gone to Zambia have :

- built houses to accommodate a teacher or a nurse
- built stores in proximity to the villages
- built, extended or renovated schools
- begun construction of or maintained orphanages
- created a nursing or doctoral training program
- etc.
