Caritas Mongu is a Catholic organization under the Zambian Episcopal Conference with a mandate to foster and uphold human dignity through promotion of  human development. Caritas Mongu engages in promotion of social justice, empowers people to challenge and act to overcome unjust situations in national governance and promotes development as a process of liberation from constraints of ignorance, poverty, disease, oppression, exploitation and injustices. Caritas Mongu aims to contribute to a transparent, responsible and accountable governance system in Zambia by 2017, through addressing the lack of active participation by citizens in the governance and development processes of their communities.
