Key Information

We are receiving growing recognition as a leader in policy on child protection and the protection of girls. In Zambia for example, the Ministry of Education adopted national guidelines that were developed by CAMFED on preventing and stopping child abuse in schools. CAMFED provides child protection training to school and community networks, helping them to raise standards for safeguarding the rights and welfare of children. With training and support from CAMFED, partner schools can put child protection policies in place.
