We act to prevent violence and sexual abuse of children

South Africa has one of the highest reported levels of child sexual abuse of any country in the world. Childhood’s 12 project partners in the country work both with preventive measures and by offering support to children who are the victims of abuse. Support includes home visits to pregnant women and new parents to identify and rectify any problems in the family as soon as possible; we work with therapy for children who are victims of abuse and help prepare young children who are victims of crime to testify in court.
