UNICEF South Africa/2018




As Father’s Day is celebrated across the world this month, UNICEF launched the second phase of its “Worth it” campaign. The campaign, in its second year, is being conducted in partnership with musicians Zakes Bantwini, Danny K and Kabelo Mabelane.

The three musicians are fathers to young children and share their experiences this father’s day in a video to be broadcast at Ster Kinekor cinema halls from 20 June onwards.

South African Child Gauge 2017

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.

The theme of the 2017 issue – “Survive, Thrive, Transform”– echoes the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children's and Adolescents' Health, which aims to end preventable deaths, ensure health and well-being, and expand enabling environments in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
