MBOOLE RURAL DEVELOPMENT – ZAMBIA

Originating as a single village endeavor, the central focus of this Zambian project is to provide orphans with school uniforms and supplies allowing them to complete their educations. Currently led by twelve young people, the Mboole Rural Development has since expanded to include 16 villages in which they now operate a variety of micro-credit enterprises. These projects, including a tailoring shop that produces school uniforms and a carpentry skills training centre, provide necessary resources while teaching valuable skills to local youth. The organization seeks to fight cultural ideas that lead to the spread of the epidemic, empower women to say no to unsafe sex and also to promote inter-generational dialogue and family planning.
