ZAMBIA NATIONAL SERVICE
The Zambia National Service (ZNS) is part of the Zambian Defence Force. It's main objectives revolve around land development, agriculture, industries, youth skills training as well as arts, sports and culture. It was established in 1963 as Land Army and was used as a militant wing of an indigenous major political party fighting for Zambia's independence at the time. It was later renamed the Zambia Youth Service in 1965, however, due to escalating liberation wars in the region, the Government felt the need for a more militant organization to augment the Zambia Army.
