Abana Project in Zambia
Conscious of the problems of the needy and marginalized women and children in the world, the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary act to address these problems. In 1998, the four RSHM international schools in Europe each adopted and became responsible for the four RSHM missions in Africa. Marymount International School Rome sponsors the missions in Zambia through its Abana Project, thus making our students aware of the RSHM Sisters, their works, and the needs of the children in this country. To help alleviate these problems, students, faculty and families at our School participate in numerous projects, events, and fundraising initiatives in support of the children in Zambia.
The Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary run social missions in 14 countries, including four countries in Africa. Marymount International School Rome has been paired with the missions in Zambia and during the last 10 years has raised more than €100,000 as direct aid for these missions.
