First Lady, Christine Kaseba, is one of the many individuals who have contributed to Zambia’s recognition in the world through her participation in various meetings and presentation of discourses on disease and marginalisation involving mainly women and children.


On Tuesday, April 8, 2014, Dr Kaseba is expected to arrive in London for the 2014 Skoll World Forum which will be held at Oxford University from April 9 to 11, 2014.


The Skoll World Forum on social entrepreneurship is a premier international platform for advancing entrepreneurial approaches and solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.


Its mission is to accelerate the impact of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs by uniting them with essential partners in a collaborative pursuit of learning, leverage and large-scale social change.


Acting Deputy High Commissioner to United Kingdom, Amos Chanda, confirmed that Dr Kaseba will be among scores of distinguished people that will speak at the three day meeting.
