LifeSavers Zambia has been on the ground working with the communities in John Howard and Lukata village. The program has been implementing the Child Protection Project which aims at combating child Marriage and child prostitution. The project is working with community Volunteers in the focus areas to withdraw children from marriage and prostitution and rehabilitate them. We are happy to report that we have managed to withdraw 40 children from marriage and prostitution between January and March. The are a lot of children involved in marriage and prostitution in our communities. Some children are withdrawn from school to get them into marriage by their guardians or parents.
Together we can end the practice of child marriage and commercial sex exploitation of children! Let children be children! Stop Child Marriages!
