Campaigning in Zambia

Summary

We're campaigning for poor children in rural areas: 60% of Zambians are classified as poor.  In recent years, the Zambian economy has grown at an average of 6-7 percent per annum, however, this has not trickled down to the poverty reduction at the community level resulting in limited access to services.
