Sexual Heath and Reproductive Rights Knows no Border (Phase 2)
The Sexual Health and Reproductive Rights Knows no Border project focuses on HIV and SRH rights education for young vulnerable people (YVP) including migrants and sex workers living in migration affected communities in Southern Africa. Funded by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), this project is implemented in Mpumalanga and will run from January 2021 – December 2026.
Save the Children South Africa advocates for the use of non-violent methods of discipline that promotes open communication between adult and child, builds a child’s self-confidence and self-discipline, and instils values of non-violence and mutual respect. Parenting programmes that provide effective positive discipline techniques are therefore vital for preventing violence against children, as they have the capacity to break the intergenerational transmission of violence. GSK has partnered with Save the Children for 3 years (October 2022 – September 2024) to improve skills of a multi-disciplinary team on child safe guarding and protection and to facilitate increased skills of preventing violence against children.
