Women & Children

Am a woman who stays right in the Peri-Urban area of Lusaka where i every day see the struggle of women and children suffering from abuse, Water and Sanitation and Hygiene problems. Floods are annual events which happens every year, whereby children stop going to school maybe for a month or two because they cant walk in rain water (floods), also water related diseases like Cholera dysentry breaks out every year. Women and Children especially in Rural and Peri-Urban areas need help from women who can stand up and advocate for their rights e.g rights to education, rights to food and shelter rights to safe drinking water and sanitation. Women are the sole custodian of families, hence they really need the right to education so that they can easly reach decision makers and be part of the decisions being made about their communitties. Rural & Peri-Urban Women need to be sentized for any community or country to develop.
