29 May – 5 June 2022 is Child Protection Week in SA🇿🇦
National Child Protection Week is commemorated in the country annually to raise awareness of the rights of children as articulated in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa and Children’s Act (Act No. 38 of 2005).
The aim of Child Protection Week (CPW) in South Africa is to raise awareness on the need to protect children against abuse, exploitation, neglect and all forms of violence. South Africans can support Child Protection Week by ensuring that the most vulnerable in our society do not suffer abuse.

ACT Africa extends our heartfelt sympathies to all families who have lost everything, their loved ones, homes, jobs and businesses in the recent Kwazulu Natal Floods.
This natural disaster has once more plunged the province of KZN into desperation and thus vulnerabilities are raw and exposed. This has a direct ripple effect on the rest of the provinces of South Africa. Socio-Economic downturn which leads to Poverty is worsened as a result…
Natural Disasters, Times of War, Political Turmoil are all perfect storms for criminal predators who will take advantage of these very tragic situations as people are desperate to survive and fall prey as victim and or perpertrator to atrocities like Human Trafficking. Frustration and Depression levels are heightened too and sadly Gender-Based Violence & Femocide increases resultantly.
