CHIBULUMA Drama Club is scouting for K10 million to enable the group carry out awareness programmes on HIV/AIDS, malaria Tuberculosis and deforestation.
Chairperson Andrew Katebe said the club was in need of K10 million for logistics and transport costs to go round the district.
Katebe said the club had planned to visit schools by performing sketches and poems on the dangers of HIV/AIDS.
Public places such as markets would be used to perform sketches related to the deforestation and other environmental degradation activities.
He said the club was not only formed to entertain people but to offer awareness programmes after realising that some people in the peri-urban areas of the district did not have information on the dangers of HIV/AIDS and other activities that concerned the livelihood of the people.
Ketebe who was flanked by the club's director of programmes Felix Mulenga told the Times Entertainment that lack of funds in the club had hampered the club's programmes that had been lined up for activities.
He said the club had been looking forward to partnering with interested non-governmental organisations or companies that would support its road-shows on issues that affect the lives of the people in rural or urban areas.
Meanwhile, the club has joined the rest of musicians and drama groups in commending President Michael Sata for creating the ministry that would be directly be dealing with their plight.
He hoped that Arts in Zambia would now be better as there was now a ministry to cater for their concerns.
Recently, President Sata created the Ministry of Tourisms and Arts headed by Chongwe Member of Parliament Silvia Masebo.
