“Children need special protection because they are among the most vulnerable members of our society.”

For Child Protection Week Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation, through its partner entity Adopt-a-School Foundation, hosted a series of events through its Thari Programme to raise awareness and to mobilise society to care for and protect children.

The campaign ran from 2-9 June. It aimed to raise awareness on the rights of children as articulated in the Children’s Act of 2005.

Events included a multi-stakeholder forum and expo, and a Sport Tournament Against Violence as part of Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation’s 15th anniversary this year. Read more here.
