Our study* revealed that the cost of violence against children in South Africa in 2015 was estimated at a staggering R238 BILLION.

But the amount of money is actually missing the point. Each rand is merely a measure of the needless pain and suffering being inflicted on our children every day.

And it’s no longer enough to simply address the symptoms. It’s no longer enough to continue putting sticky plasters on broken bones. It’s no longer enough to wipe away the tears.

We plan to eradicate this scourge over the next 5 years BUT we need every sector of society to get involved… our churches, our political leaders, corporate South Africa and the man in the street – that’s YOU!
