IDEALS / Volunteer Zambia
The programe that has offered in excess of 300 British students and staff an unforgettable Zambian experience since 2006 has been thanks to UK Sport's International Development Through Excellence and Leadership in Sport initiative (IDEALS).
In 2017 UK Sport's strategic investment in international development has changed focus. The universities that have been a part of the programme will continue to offer their students the Zambian experience under the title 'Volunteer Zambia.' These universities are known as the Wallace Group
