Children in Need Network (CHIN) is a consortium of over 240 organisations working to promote the rights and welfare of children in Zambia. Twenty organisations are now actively working in the area of CSEC, which is increasing at alarming rates in Zambia. Activities carried out by CHIN members include several key awareness-raising activities, such as a consensus-building workshop to identify issues and strategies, community meetings, group discussions, drama performances and film screenings. CHIN is actively pursuing the development of a national plan of action on CSEC in order to streamline the work of members on CSEC.

Zambian law forbids marriage below the age of 21, but many girls end up being married earlier, some as young as 13 years of age. Obtaining reliable data on child marriage is difficult, but estimates show that 31% of Zambian women are married before the age of 18.

The Government of the Republic of Zambia has embarked on a programme of ending child and forced marriages. In April 2016, its Ministry of Gender, in partnership with stakeholders and with the support of UNFPA, UNICEF, UKAID and the Government of Canada, published a National Strategy on Ending Child Marriage for the period 2016-2021.
