What does Section 20 of the Zimbabwean Constitution say?

“The State and all institutions and agencies of government at every level must take reasonable measures, including affirmative action programmes, to ensure that youths have access to appropriate education and training;  have opportunities to associate and to be represented and participate in political, social, economic and other spheres of life, are afforded opportunities for employment and other avenues to economic empowerment, have opportunities for recreational activities and access to recreational facilities and are protected from harmful cultural practices, exploitation and all forms of abuse.”
