Micah Challenge Zambia

Micah Challenge Zambia under the auspices of Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia is a coalition of evangelical Christian organizations, denominations, institutions, and individuals who come together to collaborate nationally in order to deepen Christian engagement with poor and hungry people, and to influence leaders of poor and rich nations to fulfill their public promise to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and so halve absolute global poverty by 2015. The Micah Challenge has been developed by the Micah Network and the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) in response to a groundswell among evangelical Christian churches wanting to contribute at all levels to the alleviation of poverty and to greater justice for poor communities. Micah Challenge takes its name from the prophet Micah, who wrote, “what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8).

The Micah Challenge Zambia was launched in 2006 and currently has a network of 600 individual members and 430 churches and institutions who have signed the Micah Call to hold the government accountable to achieving the MDGs.
