Zambian Friars in Zambia Project

Support youth (Grade 12 dropouts,) especially girls to attain the Grade 12 Certificate. This allows access to Tertiary or Vocational Training. Without the Grade 12 Certificate it is impossible to get any skill or go to college. Young women are the most vulnerable.

Empower the poor women in our communities so that together we may improve the living standards in our communities through education, health care and nutrition. Enhanced literacy levels shall positively impact our target groups. Once women are empowered the society becomes a better place to live in.
