World Vision Zambia on 30th September launched a campaign called 'Strong Girls Strong Zambia' to help end Child marriage in Zambia. The campaign will target 15,000 adolescent girls through an integrated approach of education, health, water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH), advocacy, and livelihood interventions.
Working with traditional and faith leaders, World Vision Zambia has created significant awareness and retrieved over 600 girls from Child marriages in different parts of the country. However, Zambia still has a gap in realizing practical and sustainable solutions to support girls retrieved from early marriages and many others at risk such as girls who drop out of school due to inadequate funds.
This campaign will be implemented in all the World Vision Zambia operation areas located in 72 districts of the Ten Provinces of Zambia.
