ABOUT US

OUR HISTORY: -The Maboshe Memorial Centre - MMC was founded by Patrick Maboshe the son to late Dr. Maboshe Ronald Aongola Maboshe at the age of 26 years old, after the death of his father Dr. Maboshe Ronald Aongola Maboshe who had traveled extensively throughout Western, Zambia during his lifetime and shared a deep concern and compassion for the welfare of the underprivileged adolescents with disabilities in Western province, Zambia. Adolescents with disabilities in rural Zambia face many problems that put their lives at risk, preventing them from getting a good education and fulfilling their potential. The cycle of poverty starts early and they are most vulnerable during adolescents with disabilities. Born into poor families many adolescents with disabilities fail to stay in school; many are tempted to have sex for money - just to survive or buy simple things, like a pen for school; or are married as early as 13 or 14 because their families see family empowerment in them.

We lost Dr. Maboshe Ronald Aongola Maboshe on the 24th of November 2002, yet his legacy remains. He demonstrated that it is never too late to help those in need. The generosity of his spirit and his passion for rural/remote adolescents with disabilities is a guiding principle for many of the projects implemented by the organization. Maboshe's spirit lives on through the lives that are given hope.

Maboshe Memorial Centre - MMC is a child disability not-for-profit making community development organization with no religious or political affiliations founded on the 24th November 2006 in memories of the late Dr. Rodney Aongola Maboshe in Mongu, Western, Zambia and registered under the laws of Zambia.
