Mrs. Muma expressed delight following positive participation in interventions spearheaded through ZOCS Programme championing girls education in Zambia.

Said an appreciative Mrs. Muma:“If you visit Chief Singani, you will see how households have been sensitized and those that have married out young girls are being punished to serve as examples to would be offenders on infringing the rights of the girl child”.

Mrs. Muma said ZOCS anticipates a future where all children in the country will attain education whether under privileged or disabled because the development of the country is dependent on citizens from all walks of life.
