Caritas Zambia

Caritas Zambia is a Catholic Organization under the auspices of the Zambia Episcopal Conference (ZEC). The organization’s mandate is to foster and uphold human dignity through promotion of integrated human development. The organization works to empower people to challenge and act to overcome unjust situations in national governance.  

It also promotes development as a process of liberation from constraints of poverty, disease, oppression, exploitation and injustices so that people are able to control their own lives. Caritas through its Governance and Human Rights Programme, is involved in access to justice activities such as the provision of legal services through trained paralegals, the raising of awareness in communities on human rights, judicial and legal processes in Zambia.
