Protecting children from violence or abuse of any kind, empowering them to become survivors not victims.
Childline Zimbabwe wants you to know what is right and wrong and we want you to know what you can do about it.
We want you to be as informed as possible because an informed person is better able to protect themselves or seek protection.
