Where is Chipapa?
The Chipapa community is located in northern Zambia, a landlocked country in southern Africa, about one-tenth the size of Australia. Zambia's neighbours include Malawi, Zimbabwe and Mozambique and Lusaka is the capital city. The official language is English, with Bemba, Lozi, Nyanja and Tonga also spoken.
Many Zambians are Christians, while others adhere to traditional beliefs. Agriculture is the main source of income for 85 percent of people, but most farmers have only small areas of land. Many men leave home to seek work in urban areas, leaving their wives and children to look after the farm.
Zambia’s major exports include copper, cobalt, electricity, tobacco, flowers and cotton. Maize (corn) is the staple food, which is ground into meal and made into a thick porridge called nshima.
