The Red Card to Child Labour Campaign

The ILO Office in Zambia was established in 1968 following an agreement signed between the Government of the Republic of Zambia and the International Labour Office. Originally, the Lusaka Office was responsible for eight countries in the Southern Africa region, namely: Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The office also organised and supported ILO assistance to liberation movements of South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe. Following the end of the apartheid regime in South Africa and the opening of an ILO office in Pretoria in 1995, the country Office in Lusaka is now responsible for three countries: Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique.

          • Government of Zambia Established a Jobs Portal
            The Government of Zambia continues to demonstrate its commitment to job creation through the development of an Industrialization and Job Creation Strategy. One of the operational aspects of the Strategy is the development of the Zambia Jobs Portal by the Ministry of Labour and Social Security with the full participation of the Private sector. The Jobs Portal further complements the Public Employment Exchange Services that have been re-launched by the Ministry.

            These initiatives that facilitate job creation (supply and demand side) respond to the priority on job creation articulated under Zambia's second Decent Work Country Program (2013-2016). The jobs portal will officially be launched on 11th December 2013 by the ILO Director General, Mr. Guy Ryder.

Personally, and on behalf of the International LabourOrganization, I extend my heartfelt condolences to his family and my deepest sympathies to the people and the Government of South Africa. We have lost a champion of freedom, of tolerance and of dialogue. With grace, humility and dignity he towered above us all in his pursuit of peace and social justice. The world has been enriched by his passion, his commitment, his perseverance, his integrity and, above all, his humanity."
