Lifesavers responds to the social needs of children, especially in the poor communities and rural areas of Zambia where access to education, health services and other social amenities are often limited or scarce. The Programme is designed to create an environment suitable for child habitation and overall social development by eliminating the social injustices at national, community and household level.
Life savers programme also seeks to rehabilitate the children exposed to traumatizing abuses by providing a safe net through the established community-based structures and in future, the children’s village and camping facilities. Through the Lifesavers’ programme, ACJ has helped withdraw hundreds of children from child marriages, provided School support and capital for income generating activities to vulnerable households. Under the health pillar, ACJ has been constructing a Health Centre in Lukata village to service the members and surrounding villages.
