Child Care South Africa [previously known as Inkanyezi Child & Family Welfare Society], is a registered non-profit organisation that provides comprehensive, quality services to children living in poverty. It was established in 1995 as a network of crèches, and in 2002 changed focus from being a networking organisation to becoming a service provider to children in distress. As a child welfare society the organisation was mostly involved in statutory work, and realised that clients could not afford to come to our offices for assistance.
The Guide for Media Practitioners on the Reporting and Coverage of Cases Involving Children, is intended to raise media awareness on issues concerning the rights of children. Released by the Philippines’ Special Committee for the Protection of Children, the guide also seeks to reinforce journalistic standards.

Gender equality occupies a central space in the NGO landscape, with organisations increasingly incorporating gender into their programming, be it around land, human rights or access to justice. There is also recognition of the potential that technology can play in achieving gender equality. Women’sNet was established to promote access to and the strategic use of Information Communication Technologies (ICT) for women’s development.
