Ethos of i4Life
i4Life is an Irish based non-profit organisation working among the poorest communities in Zambia, particularly in the Linda Compound, a township that is home to approximately 80,000 people. The i4Life team runs nutrition clinics and a primary health care centre for thousands of the residents in the area as well as projects in more remote areas of Zambia.
Founded in 2009, i4Life has developed a cascade model of mutual sharing of knowledge and
mentorship between health professionals in Ireland and Zambia to facilitate bi-lateral learning and a
deeper understanding of the challenges that marginalised communities in low- and middle-income
countries endure. It is a model that embraces equity, diversity, and cultural humility.
