About Us

Diaspora Support Initiative (DSI) Zambia

DSI is a wholly owned Zambian company established in 2013 to provide tailor-made professional services to our clients in both in Diaspora and in Zambia. At DSI, we assembled an appropriately qualified team of professionals that is passionate about developing unique solutions for our clients.

Background

The establishment of DSi was motivated by the many cases and situations in which unsuspecting Zambians have been taken advantage of by unscrupulous 'friends' or 'relatives' who agreed to undertake assignments or projects on their behalf. But soon they discovered that they had been duped, losing thousands of hard-earned kwachas in the process. Most of these people were just trying to invest in an asset back home. Some were just trying to help some relatives back in Zambia. But instead, they lost what they had earned so diligently worked for. Many were discouraged and lost interest in investing anything back in Zambia.

At the same time, there are many people who are too busy to undertake various projects. They also lack the requisite skills to undertake these assignments. In is in recognition of the above that DSi was established.
