Lattanzio KIBS is awarded the independent evaluation for UNICEF

The Children's Parliament Initiative is an initiative of the Zimbabwe Youth Council, established in 1991 with the aim of ensuring effective participation of children and youth in governance. UNICEF Zimbabwe supports the initiative, focusing its efforts on the election of adolescents to Parliament, their orientation and related activities with an oversight role on their rights and welfare.

Specifically, through meetings and interviews with children, the evaluation identifies for the first time best practices and lessons learnt, gaps to be filled and strengths of the initiative, and provides data on its relevance, effectiveness and efficiency in terms of children's participation in governance.
