The human touch at FACC
FAITH ARISE COMMUNITY CENTRE (FACC) is founded based on helping orphaned and
vulnerable children who, after adequate scrutiny have been found to have no existing relatives who can take up the responsibility of raising and caring for them.
The organization will ensure to develop these girls and boys holistically by providing a home environment for them to grow and create relationships with each other and those who will be in charge of their welfare. Faith Arise will ensure that these children are given the best environment in which to identify and unleash their potential to become positive contributors to the society and nation in which they live in and beyond.
It is the intention of this organization to see to it that the young boys and girls become men and women who aid positive change and inspire generations to come.
Faith Arise Community Centre (FACC) is a Non-Profit Making Non-Governmental Organization in Zambia that addresses the needs of Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs) and marginalized women and girls in Zambia’s rural and urban communities through programs in education, health, shelter and empowerment. We advocate for the rights of marginalized women and girls and promote gender equality and social justice.
We are committed to contributing to government efforts in ensuring that vulnerable communities in both rural and urban Zambia have access to basic needs that are not limited to Education, Health, Clean Water and Sanitation as well as Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health Rights Education (ASRHRE) and Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM).
