OBJECTIVES -To offer educational, survival and professional skills to the underprivileged in the rural parts of Zambia. -To construct schools, colleges and Universities for the underprivileged in the rural parts of Zambia. - To introduce social amenities such as Sports, Games, Libraries, Internet Cafes, Youth Friendly Corners which will make the children and youths be equipped with information and skills for the betterment of their lives and future. PURPOSE Maria Mother of Charity Relief Home International has a sole responsibility of reducing poverty in vulnerable lives and giving them long term sustainability for the good of their families and their communities at large. Education will empower them socially, economically, politically and spiritually. This will help them to fit into society and meet life challenges squarely as they also contribute to development. MMCRHI realizes that the key cause of high levels of poverty in Zambian children, youths and adults is unemployment due to limited schools, colleges and Universities that offer free education to the vulnerable. Unemployment has caused youths and adults engage in street roaming, drunkenness, prostitution and theft habits. This vulnerability surrounding youths and adults in Zambia cannot be addressed by the support from government alone; but can be augmented by concerted efforts from all stakeholders. Failure to augment the existing efforts has caused the accelerating numbers of unemployment and leaving many children, youths and adults dying from different diseases. MMCRHI therefore exists to augment the strides of the Zambian government in achieving the MDGS of empowering every Zambian child with education by 2015.
