Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

-MTC hopes to eliminate early child marriages through education, entrepreneurship, sports and to promote girls' and women's empowerment.
-It seeks to provide psycho-social support for orphans seeking pathways out of poverty.
-Offer counseling and support to girls and women recovering from the effects of Cyclone Idai in eastern Zimbabwe and work on strategies to address climate change.
-Encourage girls to participate in traditionally male sports, like soccer, while excelling in school
-Provide support and resources needed for girls to stay in school and participate in sports
MTC seeks to provide safe spaces for girls so they can study by constructing and furnishing a study center.
- Covid 19 presented more challenges as cases of gender-based violence, child marriages, and teen pregnancies skyrocketed. MTC seeks to spread messaging on sexual and reproductive health and well as put in place safe houses for GBV victims

-Provide support and resources needed for girls to stay in school and participate in sports- We have started education scholarship programs for orphaned girls to stay in school. thus addressing SDG 4 AND 5
MTC seeks to provide safe spaces for girls so they can study by constructing and furnishing a study center/Library. Addressing SDG 4
strategy: We have since fenced off, started the molding of bricks to start the construction of the education center.
SDG5
MTC has started girls' soccer programs, providing soccer equipment and training to girls. Soccer has been a predominantly male sport in rural areas. So availing equipment and tournaments have started leveling the playing field for girls
SDG1
introducing the entrepreneurship measures including training camps for reffing and coaching will lead to self-sustaining measures for women and girls.

-Covid 19 presented more challenges as cases of gender-based violence, child marriages, and teen pregnancies skyrocketed. MTC interventions became an essential service during the pandemic-induced lockdowns, as we work closely with law enforcement and child protection services to rescue teens from religious, traditional, and poverty-driven child marriages. MTC seeks to spread messaging on sexual and reproductive health and well as put in place safe houses for GBV victims

We received land to build the study center and we have started putting together building materials. We will have a study center and a safe space for temporarily keeping GBV victims.

We have started community-based soccer programs to spread the message of social justice through sports. It needs resourcing but we have human capital already.
We have already started the scholarships program and going into our 4th year now.
We have built support systems for the orphans via school.

500 Girls and community members have constantly come out at our soccer tournaments.
-Managed to engage local leadership on addressing issues f forced child marriages.
-Started with 5 educational scholarship programs and now boasts of over 20.
-All the girls who have joined our sports or scholarship programs still attend and we have not lost any to child marriages in the last 4 years.
- Girls' mentorship circles in and out of schools are attended by at least 200 girls at any particular time.
We have expanded outreach to young girls as young as 10, engaging them on issues of child abuse and study groups during this COVID 19 lockdowns
