Zambia. A country in south-central Africa with
rugged terrain, diverse wildlife, and crippling poverty.
My name is Narendra De. My wife Candice and I went to Zambia in 2016 for our honeymoon. Our plan was to make an impact on two people’s lives. But we immediately realized that we wanted to do much more, so we founded Day by De.
Our mission is to seek out and foster entrepreneurs in rural Zambia. We help these forward-thinking men and women build community gardens, as well as goat and pig farms. These projects have provided a food and income source for the villages, but most importantly, given them the tools for self-sufficiency.
We are working with a local Zambian team, consisting of Chileshe Kabwe, Kekiwe, and Fredrick Nonde. In addition, we started an internship program with the Environmental Studies Department at the University of Colorado Boulder to raise awareness of the economic disparity in rural Zambia.
Together, these projects have helped over 3,000 Zambians get one step closer to sustainability.
