Act Now: Children protecting children in Zambia

Act Now: Experiences and recommendations of children on the impact of COVID-19

On 20 November, we celebrate World Children’s Day; the anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is a day for children, by children – a day to imagine a better future for every child. This year though, the COVID-19 crisis has resulted in a child rights crisis. The costs of the pandemic for children are immediate and, if unaddressed, may last a lifetime. Hear from Kampamba (16) a young journalist in Southern Province, Zambia as he shares experiences and recommendations.

World Vision began working in Zambia in 1981 with three small community developments projects in northern Lusaka.

Today, our teams work in 43 districts in nine provinces of Zambia, complementing the Government’s efforts to reach vulnerable children and communities in the country.

Through Area Programmes, World Vision’s interventions have addressed issues of food insecurity, primarily through agriculture, water and sanitation, education, health, infrastructure development, livelihood and child protection in the process of transforming the lives of vulnerable children, women and families.

Improving the well-being and the futures of children continues to be the focus of everything we do.
