Five hundred thousand children are not attending school in Zambia.

Government is worried about the number of children not attending school in Zambia, which currently stands at 500,000.
Chipata District Administrative Officer Kapembwa Sikazwe said this during the launch of Chipata District Advocacy Committee yesterday.
Mr Sikazwe says community schools countrywide are catering for about 600,000 children, making a huge contribution towards reducing the out of school children.
He says the launch is a milestone to achieving improved service delivery in community schools by the government adding that challenges being faced by community schools will be solved.
Mr Sikazwe says the project which is being supported by Zambia Open Community Schools ZOCS and funded by Counterpart International through USAID Assistance will foster accountability and transparency in community schools.
He says government attaches great importance and value to the support rendered by private organisations such as ZOCS.
Mr Sikazwe says government is hopeful that Chipata District Advocacy Committee will be key in ensuring that there is a link between the implementers and consumers of government services.
