First Lady of Zambia mentions World Vision

From the Zambia Daily Mail:

First Lady Dr Christine Kaseba has urged Government to ensure effective implementation of the Anti-Gender Based Violence Act to curb gender based violence. “It is not enough to have the Anti-Gender Act passed, there is need by Government to ensure that the Act is effectively implemented to curb the vice which leaves its survivors emotionally, spiritually and physically violated,” she said. The First Lady said this in Lusaka yesterday when she featured on the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) television’s Kwacha Good Morning Zambia programme. This was in her special message on Sixteen Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. Dr Kaseba said society should realise that it has a responsibility to protect and prevent children against all forms of violence at home, schools and on the street. She urged families to break the silence and report all forms of violence to the police. “We are currently working on anti-gender based violence programmes in collaboration with the World Vision. We hope that through these programmes we can all put a stop to violence and ensure that our children are protected,” she said.
