Mission
The mission of our organisation is to take the challenges of poverty eradication by strengthening the youths and orphans with the ability to work together for development through income generating activities and make orphans to be self – productive. We are providing sustainable development through voluntary working by our members in training the youths, women and orphans in life skills in Solwezi and Kasempa districts of Zambia.

Vision
Our vision is to see that we reduce the number of vulnerability among the youths, orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs). We would love see that those affected and infected with HIV/AIDS cop – up with their life by enhancing our active listening skills to ensure that those grieving have their thought made lighter. CCCYD believe that today determines the future of our nation thus its focus is to non –discriminatively engage the youth and children in healthy and productive practices for a better future.
