WHAT WE DO
Msidc has three focuses in its mission to transform communities:
This is accomplished through launching a series of poverty alleviation projects for students at grassroots level.These are projects that are aimed at improving the harsh conditions in rural schools and providing the educational materials needed for students to have a better learning experience..
This arm prepares students for competitive opportunities both at college and university levels while preparing to also play a role in a world that has primary become information technology driven.
b) Enterprise development
This is accomplished through empowering women with the neccesary tools needed for them to be able to start profit making projects that help create employment and self-sustainned livelihoods.
Msidc has formed strategic partnerships with training organisations that are willing to transfer small business management skills and basics to women in the rural areas, this initiative comes with a small business loan for those who complete training programs.
c) Talent identification and nurturing
This unit focuses on identifying, nurturing and exposing talent in people from marginalized communities. These communities has some of the most gifted people who die with world changing skills that are never developed to their full potential.
Msidc responds with effective measures and methods that are aimed at placing the talent where it can be recognized and unleashed for full potential.

Msidc was founded in February 2013 by a team of very enthusiastic individuals from various walks of life as they saw a need to take action and participate in making a positive change. The team was lead by its current Executive Director who has over the years demonstrated daring passion for community leadership through various platforms including religious and social participation .
Statement from the Executive Director
As l come across to the fore to my word as Executive Director, l can’t assist but replicate on the reality that, Southern Africa’s vulnerable communities require serious intervention programs as much, if not more, now as they did during colonial days. We must persist to perk up the ways we do this in a very spirited market, and we must continue to gross and retain the expectations of donors that the money they give us does go to the rationale for which it was projected and does really make a difference.
Along with supporters and partners, Msidc gazes ahead to meeting all these challenges. We must ensure that we maintain our partnerships and forge new ones within our capacity to service them. We are capable to do additional and superior , thanks to the sustained support, solidarity, team spirit, harmony and feedback of our supporters, donors and partners.
I am proud of our staff, team and volunteers who have installed so much to make the difference we have been able to archive in our first year of existence. Our appreciation goes to every one who is the part of our mission.
The partway to end poverty is an extensive one, but when walked together , success is a surer one. We believe there is a termination of poverty through managing dispersed youth, empowering women, protecting them from abuses and exploitation and providing them safe and protective as well as productive environment. Although working along with and sustaining marginalized communities to act must accomplish it; allege their civil rights and confront the injustices they meet often.
We and our partners, supporters and those who are working with us for the welfare of marginalized creation of God; we all know about our mission and objectives; we are so grateful to whom who are working with us in this gigantic task. To our volunteers, donors and supporters we send a heartfelt note of gratitude.
