Girls’ rights are human rights! Chief Chamuka is a traditional leader in Chisamba district, Zambia. He sees the devastating impact child marriage has on girls and works with people in his chiefdom to bring an end to the practice. “We can’t develop this country with male children alone. We need the participation of the girls. Once you train a girl child, it’s like you train the whole nation. Once our girl children have the educational, moral and psychological support from all of us as leaders, our children shall make a better future”. This work in the community is supported by Plan International. UK aid to UNFPA is supporting Plan to expand their work on early and child marriage in Zambia through education, advocacy and policy work.
