South Africa

We are working with the Government and other NGOs to improve the child care systems they have in place, and to successfully implement Acts and Reforms which have been successfully passed.

Facts and figures

• There are estimated to be around 20,000 children in institutional care.

• Roughly one third of institutions are privately run, making it harder to trace and monitor children in them.


Latest Developments

• We are currently in the process of a child count, to help create an official record of the number of institution and children, and to help us to better inform our decision making process.

We stop children being separated from their families in the first place by supporting families to get back on their feet.
