The United Church of Zambia (UCZ) has launched the Child Protection Safeguarding Policy at UCZ St Paul’s congregation in Lusaka during the Candlelight church service to commemorate the 16 days of activism against Gender Based Violence (GBV) last November.

During the launch, UCZ Synod Community Development and Social Justice Secretary Deaconess Mable Sichali spoke about the need for stakeholders to come on board and support the Church in creating a conducive environment and safe spaces for children at home, school and church to grow and flourish.

UCZ St Paul’s Congregation Minister in Charge Rev.Chayana Nkonde said the policy document reflects the Church’s desire for love and care towards children, while Lusaka Presbytery Bishop Dr. Rev Lordwell Siame delivered the homily message, where he reminded GBV victims to report perpetrators to relevant authorities.
