About The Tri-State Association of Zambians:

TAZ is a social networking and service organization in New York that aims to encourage the betterment of Zambian nationals living in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. We provide our growing number of members with the tools and support necessary for the sustainable development of Zambian communities in the tri-state area and in Zambia.

The Tri-State Association of Zambians or  TAZ, was founded in April of 2015 by New York resident Ernest Masheke.

Ernest saw the need for Zambian nationals in the tri-state area to stay better connected.  Ernest had the idea of having an association that represents the interest of Zambians in and around his community. He went from house to house of as many Zambians as he knew living in the tri-state area to learn if they would be interested in coming together under one association with the common goal of supporting each other in the diaspora so that we can better support our mother Zambia.


Encouraged by the positive response of a number of  Zambians, Ernest went forward with his plan and assembled a team of people who he felt could best help him realize his vision.

With his executive team behind him, he established The Tri-State Association of Zambians.  The growing number of TAZ members now enjoy the benefits of a supportive network that focuses on local and international outreach efforts, mentorship, educational and career development as well as access to resources that allow for the sustainable development of a growing community of people.

And for many, it has become a home away from home.
