Background Information

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) carries out the commitment of the Bishops of the United States to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas. Our Catholic identity is at the heart of our mission and operations. We welcome as part of our staff and as partners people of all faiths and secular traditions who share our values and commitment to serving those in need.

Children who grow up in safe, healthy, nurturing families have better outcomes in life—including improved cognitive, emotional, and social development, better health, and greater success in school. To help break the cycle of poverty, CRS is implementing the Inclusive Family Support Project in Zambia to create more resilient families and communities.

CRS’ Children in Families Strategic Change Platform is a bold initiative to strengthen families. The goal of the platform is to help vulnerable children thrive in safe, healthy, and nurturing families; create more resilient and supportive communities; and work with governments to establish policies and systems that strengthen families. CRS also advocates with governments, donors, and other regional and global stakeholders to direct resources and support to strengthening families.

Through the Inclusive Family Support Project in Zambia, CRS will build upon decades of experience in community and family strengthening activities—and our strong partnerships with the Catholic Church, governments, and local organizations—to ensure families in targeted communities have the resources and skills to care for children. To strengthen families, CRS will help caregivers learn and practice positive parenting; connect isolated families with supportive communities; help children—especially children with disabilities—attend remote or in-school learning and access health and social services; and build families’ resources through savings groups, cash grants, school vouchers and financial education.
