St. Peter Claver Society is dedicated to providing the tools for the personal development of orphans in Zambia in order for them to become self-reliant adults. Through various fundraising events and donations, we support three African projects affiliated with the Catholic faith:
- St. Anthony Children’s Village in Ndola, Zambia, which is run by Dominican Sisters, provides care for about 100 infants and children, the majority born to mothers who have died of AIDS. Many of the children are HIV positive. There are also about 60 children with special needs, many having cerebral palsy. St. Anthony’s provides shelter, nutrition, health care and access to treatment, as well as pre-school education.
Mulele Mwana Skills Centre, Lusaka, Zambia, the SPCS provides breakfasts and lunches for about 250 students of the St. Charles Lwanga Catholic Community School.
OUR LATEST PROJECT
A NEW PROJECT FOR THE ST. PETER CLAVER SOCIETY
The Cardinal Mazombwe Agricultural and Life Skills Centre in Zambia allows 40 young adults, ranging in age from 10 to 21, to grow crops for their own consumption, and to raise funds to put themselves through school. It recently added poultry production and purchased 10 piglets in order to generate money all year round. The SPCS Committee agreed to pay for the construction of a 12 pen brick pigsty.
