South African National Child Rights Coalition

As you may know or not know, we at Give a Child a Family have always been a promoter of collective, collaborative work and networks of organisations.  #StrongerTogether

We are so very happy to announce the South African National Child Rights Coalition - SANCRC that will be looking at, amongst many things like Children’s Rights, best interest of children and the South African government related to policy issues. For years we have been sitting on the side-lines of meetings organised by Government and DSD and we ‘seem’ to get nowhere – because ultimately, there is a need for systemic changes and this is what we hope to achieve with the South African National Child Rights Coalition.  It is a brand new little body, but we are hoping to grow and swell the membership so that we can be voices to contend with from various NPO sectors, CBO’s, Civil Society, FBO’s, Children themselves, and many others, that is why we need you!  We are already about 40 members and we need hundreds more…

Please take the time to read the document attached and pass onto all your networks, to join the South African National Child Rights Coalition (SANCRC). An advocacy and communications coalition to support coordinated action for effective child rights governance in South Africa – now, in the face of COVID-19, and in the future.
