About Us

A national movement of radical child rights activists working to end exploitation of children in Zambia.

Mission

To implement and support actions that prevent violence against children and young people, stengthen protection systems, and promote and reintegration of children and younger victims of violence.

Commercial Sexual Expolitation

Commercial sexual exploitation of children is an abhorrent violation of the human rights of children and adolescents and a form of economic abuse possible

Capacity Building

We help organisations intergrate child protection, child rights and proitization of children in their programming

Recovery and reintegration

Aricle 34 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child provides the right to recovery and reintegration of children from sexual exploitation.

Some Background

“Ubuchingo” is word in Bemba; a Zambian local language meaning protection.

Ten years ago a few professional women started a small association in Northern Province to speak up against defilement which had become a huge problem in their area. After many years of interventions the association received overwhelming response and recognition, they then decided to take on a bigger challenge by registering the association. Ubuchingo has since grown to reach more provinces in the country.

Things we do

Ubuchingo’s programmes include raising awareness on specific issues on child rights/ protection using a variety of media including community discussions, musical concerts, social media and Radio/ TV stationsWe also work with other partners to advocate for laws that will enhance child evelopment and survival.Ubuchingo fights for the share of children through budget tracking so that duty bearers also give children an ear.
