We commit to ending violence against children
UNICEF and the Media Monitoring Agency this week hosted a Master Class for editors and journalists to create awareness about the We Commit initiative currently being rolled out in South Africa.
We Commit is an initiative of organisations and individuals comprising civil society, government and UN agencies to find sustainable solutions to the high levels of violence against children in South Africa. This awareness raising initiative is intended at developing strategies collectively to amplify violence prevention strategies.
South African Child Gauge 2017
The South African Child Gauge 2017 explores what the country’s children need to not only survive but also to thrive. Since 1994, child poverty has decreased and children’s survival and access to basic services has improved. But these changes are not enough to unlock the full potential of all children. Violence, poverty, hunger, and poor-quality education continue to compromise children’s development and life chances – with a negative impact on the country’s development.
