TRACING THE STEPS
Zimbabwe Parliamentary Caucus on Child Rights
On the 30th of October 2020, SAPST in partnership with the ZNCWC and Plan International held a child rights dialogue with Members of Parliament. The dialogue culminated in the motion to establish a child rights caucus. The Motion received overwhelming support from other members of Parliament, evidenced by the very vibrant debate that ensued. The Motion was adopted on 24 November 2020 during the National Assembly sitting.
In the region SAPST implements a programme which seeks to enhance the recognition, promotion, protection and fulfilment of Social, Economic and Cultural Rights in both the SADC region generally and in the target countries Malawi, Botswana and Lesotho
