Caritas Zambia strategic issues have been clustered around four main areas which also form Caritas Zambia programmes namely; Democracy and Governance, The Church and State, Economic and Social Accountability, and Livelihoods and Climate Change Adaptation. In addition, there is a fifth programme which provides support to all the other four programmes and is called Organisational Development.

The Church and Society Programme (CSP)

The aim of this programme is to have a Church that influences the State to fulfill its responsibility to eradicate poverty, respect human rights and uphold the rule of law for all. The CSP areas of focus are:

  • Formation (Training for Transformation and Justice and Peace Formation):  The focus is on strengthening Caritas Structures and Social Ministries at all levels of the Catholic Church so that pastoral agents are able to execute their mandate effectively.
  • Access to Justice: The focus is  on empowering the Justice and Peace and Development Commissions with skills and knowledge to support citizens to access justice and claim their rights.
  • Active Church Leaders’ Voice on Social Justice: Church leaders will be supported to speak out on social justice issues and hold the state to account for all its decisions and actions.
