The Centre for Trade and Policy Development CTPD has called for more effort to ensure social services that include girl’s education, social security and women empowerment serve the intended purpose.
CTPD Researcher Wakumelo Mataa says research conducted by the organization with support from Save the Children conducted in Lufwanyama and Kitwe shows the need to fill certain gaps hampering progress in the provision of social services.
Mr.Mataa cites the keeping of the girl child in school program as having faced challenges because most girls have continued to drop out of school, a situation which needs attention if the plight of the girl child is to be protected.
