Government has embarked on a program of removing street children from the streets and reunite them with their families.
Ndola District Child Protection Committee Coordinator Esther Chimimba disclosed to ZANIS in Ndola that 48 street children have since being withdrawn from the streets.
Ms Chimimba said 38 of the street kids had been reunited with their families while the remaining 10 had proved to be homeless.
Recently, Minister of Sports, Youth and Child Development Moses Mawere held talks with some parents where he disclosed that his Ministry would train and empower parents of street children with entrepreneurships kills.
Mr Mawere said the training would help the parents fend for their families and stop them from sending children on the streets to sell different items or beg for money.
Ms Chimimba observed that most children go to the streets in search of fast money adding that the committee would offer training to parents on how to be innovative, save and invest their profits.
She further explained that those that will manage to grow and sustain their businesses would be given extra finance to motivate them into growing their business.
Ms Chimimba stated that the project will be rolled out to other parts of the country soon.
