This booklet outlines a vision as to how the Children's Parliament can become a more powerful, representative, and effective forum to advocate for children's rights in Zimbabwe. Written by a group of current and former child parliamentarians, the booklet is meant to provoke comment and reflection, and to prompt a start among policy makers, ministry officials, non-governmental organizations and young people themselves in ensuring that the Children's Parliament lives up to the high ideals that informed its creation in 1990. The booklet is a compilation of child parliamentarians' experiences to date, and it also incorporates the views of other children who have had no contact with parliament as to what they might expect from such an institution. The booklet is divided into the following sections: "Preface"; "Acknowledgments"; "Introduction"; "The Background of the Children's Parliament"; "Individual Experiences"; "Shortfalls of the Children's Parliament"; "Recommendations"; and "Conclusion."
