Sustainable Gender Equity Project SUGEP Coordinator Mr Jeff Kayamba from Kaluli Developement Foundation in Sinazongwe District has called on Children to take education seriously in order to be self-reliant in future.
Mr.Kayamba says the world is cruel to a child who is not educated causing them to be victims of several of abuses in society.
He explains that children can only manage to stand and fight for their rights when educated, hence the need to use the available time wisely to acquire education.
Mr.Kayamba further implored girls in schools to remain focused in their studies adding that it is only through education that a girl child can earn the respect she deserve in life.
He said this during the psychosocial live skills training for peer educators at Makonkoto Primary school on tuesday morning.
