Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council

2016 - 2017 Annual Report

The year 2016/17 is the fourteenth year of the Zomba Action Project (ZAP) and my fifth year as Chair of ZAP.

Wheelchair GiftIt was on 1 April 2015 that the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council (CC&GBC) came into existence, and for past two years ZAP has worked to maintain the link with the Zomba City Council (ZCC) and has continued to fund projects in the Zomba area of Malawi. Over the two years the ZAP Management Board has engaged with the new Council with a view to ZAP being accepted as its international charity, and the Council renewing the link with Zomba City Council. In March we received the good news that the CCGBC has agreed to establish the link with the ZCC in the coming months, and to provide support for ZAP in the following ways: * The nomination of 4 or 5 Councillors on to the ZAP Management Board, * A room in Cloonavin for the Management Board 's monthly meetings, and eventually an extension of ZAP into all three other legacy Council's areas e.g. a room to meet in Ballycastle, Ballymoney and Limavady. * The existing facility at the Parks Nursery of a container to store "useful" items for transport to Zomba, and the transport facility, a Council van, to take the donated items to Ballynure as at present. * The level of support Council may wish to give in actively promoting the Zomba connection throughout the Borough and the Zomba Action Project's role in that connection. I welcome the four Councillors who have been nominated by the CCGBC to the Board of ZAP and I trust they will be able to assist ZAP in promoting the Zomba connection throughout the Borough.
