Who are we?

Child Protection Collaborative is a civil society child protection movement, which is made up of representative practitioners and professionals from various entities. 

We acknowledge our shared failure to protect all children. We act on behalf of the civil society sector for the safety and wellbeing of all children (including urban and rural children in the Western Cape, South Africa).

To this end we unite with an aim to exert pressure on all sectors to improve policy, legislation, policy implementation and services for the prevention of violence and abuse against children.
