  1. I am a second year student at the University of Zambia Studying Special Education(evening classes).I hold an Advanced Diploma in Human Rights from Nipa..please kindly inform me if there are any vacancies at the e-mail address is and my number is 0977264421. Thank you.


    When inviting people for interviews, please, give them enough time for them to prepair and make it in time because some of us are currently working with other NGOs.

    It happened to me only last month when I was called to attend the MCC CHAUFFEUR interviews, I was just given a less than one day notice. The invitation came at around 11:00am to say I was required for the same at 08:00am the very following day! Unfortunately for me, I was far out on a field trip on duty. It would require, at least, more than one day of travel for me to make it in time for the interview. So, I missed the important opportunity and felt bad!

    I am not criticizing, so don’t take it like that, but I am making an appeal to the US Embassy to look at it from the good side and consider it favourably next time and help prevent leaving out the best candidates who might fail to make it for the reason above – the same reason I failed to make it.

    Thank you and, please, My high regards to you all,

    Geoffrey Kanyenge.
