Since 1996, Plan International Zambia has been promoting children’s rights alongside communities, partners and the government.
We believe in the power and potential of every child and we support the most vulnerable children and their communities to be free from poverty.
We tackle the root causes of issues facing girls, such as child marriage, teenage pregnancy, violence, exclusion and poverty.
We work in Central, Luapula, and Eastern Provinces and our central office is located in Lusaka.
Our key areas of work include:
- Keeping children safe from all forms of violence
- Improving children’s access to quality education and early childhood development
- Supporting young people to get good jobs and earn a living
- Preparing for and responding to emergencies.
Traditional leaders take lead to protect children against violence
Violence against children through tradtional practices is still rife in Zambia, however traditional leaders themsleves are now becoming agents of change.
