Child Rights Barometer: Measuring Government Efforts to Protect Girls and Boys in Zambia

The Child Rights Barometer Report measures Zambia’s level of performance in advancing Child Rights. The Report also highlights the discrepancies between the policies and laws and their implementation. This report was a joint effort by World Vision Zambia, Child Justice Forum, Children In Need Network, SOS Children’s Village, Regional Psychosocial Support Initiative, and the Undikumbukire Zambia Project.

While Zambia has made numerous achievements in promoting and upholding Child Rights, the reality on the ground points to the fact that the country still faces incidences of Child Rights violations

We trust this Child Rights Barometer Report for Zambia will advance efforts at both local and national levels to foster effective implementation of policy and law around Child Rights and promote access to quality services to all children, including the most vulnerable. It is our hope that this Report will promote partnership, both within and out of the country, for Child Rights advocacy and improved child protection programming.
