Children's Rights Centre (CRC)

We seek to contribute to the development of a sustainable child-friendly society in South Africa, with child-friendly policies and practices at all levels of society based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, African Charter on the Rights & Welfare of the Child, and the South African Constitution. We do this through awareness-raising, training, monitoring, advocacy, information sharing and building a children's rights movement including children and adults as partners.

Steady progress being made

Steady progress has been made thus far with the preparations for the launch of this campaign on the 1st August 2013. The content for the information booklet for mothers is being developed by a team of pediatricians and communication specialists. The individuals involved in developing our booklet for mothers were heavily involved in the development of the newly launched National Prevention of Mother-To-Child Transmission (PMTCT) Policy for South Africa. There are few others in South Africa who understand this policy as well as these professionals and we are privileged and honored to have them working with us.

Listen out for our Yezingane Network Chairperson Prof. Ashraf Coovadia speaking about the campaign on SAFM (http://tunein.com/radio/SAFM-1051-s6404/) on Wednesday 15th May at 19h00 South African time (Africa/Johannesburg). To see what time this is in your country visit http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc.

 

We sincerely appreciate your support and contributions to this project, and we will continue to keep you updated on the progress and impact that your invest is making in the lives of South African mothers and babies.

Thank you,

Continued Impact in 2013

Dear Valued Donors,

 

We are pleased to share with you that the My Living Positively Handbook for HIV infected and affected children has had continued impact into 2013.

 

In the months of January and February 2013 we have distributed a total of 401 Handbooks for children and 421 Guides for adults. These went to 7 provinces in South Africa including Mpumalanga, Free State, Limpopo, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, and Western Cape. These have been specifically distributed into rural areas to provide a valuable resource for children and adults for understanding their HIV treatment, and dealing with the stigma they experience. Often this handbook is the first book a child or household owns, and therefore has a huge impact in assisting children and their caregivers to understand HIV and provides the tools needed to help cope with its effects.

 

We would like to thank you for your continued support of this project as your contributions truly have a lasting impact on the wellbeing of children in South Africa.

If you have not done so already, please consider also supporting our newly launched Campaign aimed at preventing HIV transmission to new born babies.
