As you may be aware we are the first child activist group formed in South Africa in 1994, thanks to 702 and their listeners. While we seem to rather quiet in the face of the horrific child abuse cases covered in the media, we are very much on the ground but because of our financial constraints cannot be very visual. We are still the only true 24hour help line available countrywide and, to the best of our ability, assist any child or caregiver that approaches our Group with advise and even hold their hands through the trial and warn them of the possible pitfalls.
Child Abuse Action Group has been active at various forums, such as, NPA (National Plan of Action for Children), GPAC (Gauteng Plan of Action for Children), gave input to the Law Commission regarding improved Bail Conditions, Sexual Offences Act, the Children’s Bill and many more. Presently, we are submitting our views to the Law Reform Commission’s Draft Bill on Human Trafficking with special interest to the handling of children.
As a Group we are prepared to workshop the Protocol of Child Abuse and Neglect right down to community levels as we believe the man and woman in the street do not either know or understand what child abuse is. The public at large are unaware of the effects of abuse on themselves and society.
Your participation at our Golf Day would be appreciated, as you will boost our financial coffers so that we can work even more extensively. Come and enjoy the day and make a difference to the children of our nation!
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Yours in child protection
Child Abuse Action Group
