Lisa on the podium in front of WCP logo
Lisa, Zimbabwe

Lisa represented girls who have been abused, and children who fight for girls’ rights. Now she is an Honorary Adult Friend.

This is what Lisa told us about when she was on the jury:

“We had to sleep on the veranda, even in the middle of winter when it was freezing,” she says.

When she was seven, her mother threw her father out and Lisa joined the Girl Child Network girls’ club at her school. They teach girls about their rights.
“At the girls’ club, we talk about things that are important to us. Girls aren’t safe at all in Zimbabwe. We are abused and raped, and we have to do all the housework. If there isn’t enough money for everyone, it’s always the boys who are allowed to go to school.
I help organise meetings and demonstrations for girls’ rights.”
