Welcome to FES Zambia Office

This year, the FES Zambia celebrates its 50th anniversary. Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung opened its first office in Zambia in the mid-sixties, shortly after independence, and has since then pursued its vision to promote the core ideas and values of social democracy in Zambia – freedom, justice and solidarity.


As a result of this meaningful anniversary, our foundation has organized a jubilee week of events to celebrate the achievement. This celebration week will take place between 24th and 28th September 2018, with different activities taking place in Lusaka Zambia. In addition, the Foundation will host a jubilee celebration evening on Wednesday 26th September 2018, that will be graced with the presence of important dignitaries from Germany and Zambia.
