CARE in Southern Africa
Empowering Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Zambia
Fill Hearts, Minds and Bellies
In developed countries like the United States your earning potential is often based on the number of diplomas you have. But in rural Malawi, completing even a primary education is one of the most precious things anyone can achieve. For most girls there, getting even that single diploma is a rarity.
Our vision states that “CARE seeks a world of hope, tolerance, and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.” But what exactly does social justice mean?
Social justice is the idea that all people, everywhere in the world, have the right to a life of dignity. This means a life free from poverty, violence, discrimination or human rights violations.
