About Us

About Our Ministry

At SLIM we recognize the importance of local insight into local problems. Before we can help, it is essential that we understand. As a homegrown African organization, SLIM was established in 2015 to address the need to reach vulnerable people using an holistic approach. It is our mission to be the SALT and the LIGHT in the lives of orphans, youth, vulnerable women, prisoners, and communities.

Our initial focus was our home nation of Zambia, but we have seen God establishing SLIM in other African nations. Hence, we believe in working together as the body of Christ, and we welcome partnerships with organizations in other African nations. Join us as in our labour of love to impact young people for God’s kingdom!

Our Approach



Through literacy classes, educational support, and leadership development, SLIM enables people to develop their minds in order to address their future physical needs sustain-ably.


Showing LOVE by providing basic needs to vulnerable communities through food outreaches, prison ministry, orphan care, and mission outings, SLIM is constantly striving to stay SALTY!


Our bodies are wonderfully made, and to be good stewards of our bodies we need to keep them fit and healthy. SLIM’s health outreaches inform and engage communities while we sharing the message of God’s grace.


Man shall not live by bread alone… SLIM’s ministry outreaches establish churches, disciple community leaders, mentor young couples, and provide Bible study materials. It is essential to shine BRIGHTLY!
