Challenge

- With 51% of children falling victim to sexual abuse and 21% victim's to assault with grievous harm, child safety is a significant, multi-faceted and complex issue. - Poor education with 30 % pass rate is a low base - Widespread poverty, inequality, unemployment, inadequate housing etc. all contribute to the social factors that fuel violence. - A key theme surfacing includes that of the restoration of the family unit and moral sets. - Over 87 000 children live in child headed households.

Solution

-We partner and provide support (skill, funds, governance, leadership e.t.c) to community/faith based organisations, schools, clinics, NGO's. - Unlocking the power of the community will play a vital role in ensuring the safety and security of our children. -We capacitate communities and focus on children from 0 -22 years, supporting, guiding & building them to be responsible Global Citizens. - Cultural practices - Budgeting for child led/ child participation initiatives
