One current geographic focus country is Zambia where 1.2 million children under the age of 15 have lost one or both parents. GHR is launching a collaborative effort with multiple Zambian partners to strengthen families and protect children throughout the country.
GHR’s approach has already demonstrated significant progress. GHR Children in Families staff recently convened a meeting in partnership with local government and NGOs to share resources and discuss a national child welfare plan. The results included:
- Valuable collaboration between government, local non-profits and international experts
- Leadership from government and shared investment by UNICEF Zambia
- Shared resources from global alliance partners Better Care Network and Family for Every Child
To hear more about this remarkable convening, view this brief interview with UNICEF Zambia Child Protection Specialist David Lamin. If you are interested in collaborating to strengthen families and increase stability for children in Zambia, contact us today.
