History

The Zambia Association of Child Care Workers is an Association of Child Care professional whose aim is to promote Child Welfare through quality service provision in Zambia. The association was founded in 2005, inspired by the Minimum Standards of Care initiated by the Ministry of Community Development and Social Services through the Child Care Upgrading Program (CCUP). The formation of the Association was premised on the understanding that the implementation of the Minimum Standards can only be fully realized by providing appropriate skills to child care-givers in Zambia.
