Coaching Boys Into Men (CBIM)
The Ministry working in collaboration with Centre for Communication Programmes (ZCCP) also known as Kwatu with funding support from USAID and PEPFAR facilitated the development of the training manual for a programme called Coaching Boys Into Men (CBIM). The programme aims at training boys from the age of 7 – 14 how to prevent gender-based violence using football. The training runs for a period of 13 weeks. To this effect, 16 districts have started implementing this programme. The Training Manual was launched by the Minister of Youth, Sport and Arts Honorable Elvis Nkandu, MP in November 2021. The dissemination of the manual and training will cover the whole country targeting all stakeholders. It’s a worthwhile intervention in fighting GBV in the Zambian communities and a milestone of enhancing integrity in sport. In this regard, 76 coaches have been trained so far.
