Corporate Social Responsibility

We collectively allow collective responsibility towards socio-economic development and the philanthropy landscape to support in Family Based Care and Family Strengthening (FS)

The rationale for this collective responsibility is that there are indicators of poverty in our community where men, women and youth in the targeted rural communities have low household incomes, and are denied the ability to provide for the needs of their families in terms of food, health and education. In Zambia, 60 percent of people live below the poverty line and 42 percent are classified as extremely poor (ZDHS, 2013-14). Poverty rates are highest for female-headed households, with extreme poverty levels of more than 60 percent in rural areas and 15 percent in urban areas.  Thus, we will work together in engaging communities in productive livelihood activities to boost household economic portfolios and financial inclusion.
