South Africa is marked by high levels of violence and exploitation of children in places where they should be safe. All children should thrive in a safe environment.
No child under the age of 5 should die from preventable disease and all our children deserve long-term good health.
Insufficient resources prevent children from achieving their rights as enshrined in the South African Constitution. We are campaigning for a strengthened child-rights system.
The quality of education in the foundation years has a lasting impact and we are working hard to ensure that every child receives quality basic education.
