Fracarita Southern Africa (covering Zambia and South Africa) is an international organisation specialising in mental health, education and disability care.

Our Aim

Fracarita Southern Africa's main aim is to support and consolidate inclusive and integrated approaches that are rooted in mainstreaming popular participation of the ordinary people in the fight against poverty and mental illnesses in Southern Africa. Across all our programmes, we commit to policy intervention mechanisms around mental health, special education and disability care, with the ultimate aim being sustaining the livelihoods of the most abandoned members of our societies.

Our Services

  • Psychiatric Rehabilitation

In advancing mental health in Southern Africa, we collaborate with existing training institutions to facilitate for the training of more mental health practitioners in the region. We have an advocacy and sensitisation programme aimed at promoting help seeking behaviour in mental health as well as changing the negative cultural beliefs associated with mental illnesses. We provide psychiatric rehabilitation services aimed at reintegrating the mentally ill back to a productive lifestyle.

  • Education

Through our existing schools in South Africa and those that we plan to set up elsewhere in the region, our aim is to provide more educational opportunities for the vulnerable. We compliment this initiative with advocacy campaigns meant to counter negative cultural beliefs associated with the education of people with special needs.

  • Disability Care

In our existing centres in South Africa and those that we plan to set up elsewhere in the region, we facilitate for the provision of training opportunities for the physically and mentally disabled in order to impart them with lifesaving skills.

  1. To provide quality mental health services in Southern Africa.
  2. To facilitate for the provision of more educational opportunities for vulnerable people in Southern Africa.
  3. To enhance and influence policy intervention mechanisms on improved mental health, education and disability care in Southern Africa.

  • Openness, accountability and transparency
  • Awareness, sensitivity and empathy
  • Co-operation and collaboration

Background

Fracarita Southern Africa is a regional development organisation of the congregation of the Brothers of Charity in the Catholic Church. The organisation was established in accordance with the resolutions of the General chapter of 2012 of the Brothers of Charity. The 2012 General Chapter saw Global Action Against Poverty (the development NGO of the Brothers of Charity) change its name to Fracarita International and regional organisations of Fracarita were introduced to help coordinate development works of the Brothers.

With regional offices in Lusaka, Africa, Fracarita Southern Africa is mandated to coordinate development works of the Brothers of Charity in the Southern African region. The organisation is a direct result of the Charism of the Brothers of Charity, their shared vision, mission and values, and the need to unite and empower humanity on issues concerning mental health, disability care, and special education in Southern Africa.

Since 2013, the organisation has been involved in activities aimed at alleviating and/or containing mental illnesses, supporting environmentally friendly sustainable development as well as forming partnerships and alliances with other like-minded organisations, civil institutions, governments, and with the private sector.

To work towards the realisation of a healthy and poverty free society in Southern Africa through strategic partnerships, research, advocacy and information sharing.
