Mukuru Promotion Centre (MPC) is a faith based, non-profit organization founded in 1985 by the Sisters of Mercy. The Centre has expanded to meet the needs of a growing population and operates multiple projects in education, health, social welfare, social rehabilitation and environmental change.
For more than 30 years MPC has been part of the Mukuru community comprising over 20 informal settlement villages with a population of 600,000. Sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, in the Spirit of their Foundress Catherine McAuley, MPC endeavours to give children, adults and families, including those with disabilities, hope for a better and brighter future. Located on 5 different sites within a 3km radius and a staff of over 130 members, the outreach is considerable.
The operational side of MPC is only made possible through the generosity of like minded organizations, both locally and overseas. Together, the lives of thousands of people living in the informal settlement are transformed through education, health and welfare.
Our mission is to build a strong, individual relationship with all of our children and to support them through the various stages of education. We also reach out to the community and Mukuru schools on ways to manage the environment like tree-planting, recycling and waste management.
