By Nicholas Mwale:

The District Administration in Chama, Muchinga Province has appealed to Non-Governmental Organisations to introduce social protection programmes in the area.

Chama District Administrative Officer Steven Mulenga says there are no NGOs implementing any social protection programmes in Chama, apart from the ones being implemented by government.

Mr. Mulenga says the district has many vulnerable people who need help through social protection projects such as the Supporting Women’s Livelihood being implemented by the Ministry of Community Development and Social Services.

He has observed that much as government is doing its part, the situation requires the intervention of the NGOs to reach out to many vulnerable communities.

Mr. Mulenga was speaking in Chama when officers from the Ministry of Community Development and Social Services visited the district to check on the impact of the Supporting Women’s Livelihood Project.

And Chama District Community Development Officer Lloyd Kalumba said the Supporting Women’s Livelihood Project is targeting 1-thousand 6-hundred women in the district, out of whom 90 percent have received productivity grants.
