Building houses in Zambia

Follow this project Twitter RSS

In the late 1960s, Zambia was the third largest copper producer in the world. Its natural resources made it potentially one of the richest countries in Africa. In the early 1980s, the world price of copper plummeted, plunging Zambia into debt. Despite recent economic progress, Zambia remains one of the least developed nations in the world. Unemployment and poverty are widespread and 82% live on less than $2 a day.
