A charitable trust is a type of local NGO run by a small group of people known as trustees. The trustees are appointed rather than elected, and there is no wider membership. In contrast, civil society organisations are non-state actors whose aim is to unite people to advance shared goals and interests. There are many charitable trusts and civil society organisations in Zambia.

There are also many self-help associations in Zambia, which are informal groups of people who come together to address their common problems. There are also several Cooperative Societies. These are more formal voluntary associations which also aim to serve their members. They are a form of business in which individuals join hands for the promotion of common goals.
