What We Do
We work to improve livelihoods. To empower current leaders. To ready leaders of tomorrow. And to give them a future in which they are educated, healthy and economically secure.
We build leadership to sustain healthier communities.
We support leaders by investing in capacity building, training trainers and leaders, and giving them the tools they need to make a difference.
Young Leaders Program
The Young Leaders Program strives to challenge young leaders across the world to address problems facing their communities in the areas of education, health and economic security. We train and invest in their leadership through four programs: The Alumni Ventures Fund, the Community Leaders in Africa Internship Program, the Young Leaders Conference and the Young Leaders Access Program.
Vocational Training Courses
Rwanda & Zambia
The Skills Development programs run by MC-Rwanda and MC-Zambia are focused on increasing the digital literacy skills and tailoring opportunities of students as an antidote to the economic insecurity that characterizes their respective communities: Bugesera in Rwanda and Chanyanya in Zambia. To this end, their employability is enhanced through vocational training courses.
Oral Health Care Program
MC-Tanzania has a vision for communities throughout Tanzania to live free from oral and dental diseases. Using an inter-disciplinary approach to achieve sustainability, MC-Tanzania strives to build the capacity of health professionals in Tanzania to tackle the oral health workforce shortage, particularly dentists and dental therapists.
Rwanda & Zambia
Since 2011, MC-Rwanda has offered youth a range of social activities to help them grow as emerging leaders who are socio-culturally aware. Through performing arts, traditional dance, modelling and karate MC-Rwanda connects with the youth in Bugesera and teaches them how to collaborate with their peers in addressing pressing needs in their own communities.
Through this program, MC-Zambia targets out-of-school children and adolescents in the rural community of Chanyanya who did not have access to formal education due to varied socio-economic constraints. By teaching them literacy and numeracy, MC-Zambia prepares them for enrolment into formal schools and later integrates them into government schools.
