‘I HAVE a passion for children’s rights. If anything, I would love to remain 17 [years old] forever so that I continue talking for the Zambian children,” says Precious Mulenga.
Precious, who completed her Grade 12 last year, was the head girl at Kasama Girls Secondary School in Northern Province.
Her pleasant disposition, coupled with eloquence, knowledge and the wisdom she possesses on children’s rights, makes her stand out among her peers.
These qualities could have hugely influenced the Kasama Girls Secondary School management to choose her as the school’s head girl, leading 1,300 pupils from grades eight to 12.
Precious’ passion in child rights activism stems from her involvement in the school’s Child Rights Club (CRC) supported by Panos Institute Southern Africa (PSAf), in partnership with school authorities, aimed at creating awareness on the rights of children.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
