27 May – 2 June 2015
CHILD PROTECTION WEEK (CPW)
CPW is an awareness campaign that aims at raising awareness of the Rights of Children. In South Africa, CPW is commemorated annually so as to raise awareness with regards to the Rights of Children in South Africa as articulated in the Children’s Act 38/2005. Protecting South African Children is a shared National Responsibility of every South African and any adult living in the Country.
MOTTO FOR CAMPAIGN
‘Umntwana wakho, ngumntwana wam’
‘Your child is my child and my child is your child’
OUR CHALLENGE TO YOU!
During CPW, we challenge you to support this campaign by either wearing the green ribbon (symbolises life and growth) or dressing up during one of these days in what reminds you of your childhood years.
Take a pic and send it to us. Remember, it is about having fun, remembering your childhood years and thus creating a non-violent society that will allow our children to be protected and also have a chance to build their own childhood memories.
Additionally, during this week, The Greater Benoni Child Welfare will be running a drive to collect non-perishable goods, clothes and blankets that will be of benefit to both the children in Colin House and the needy (young & old) in Daveyton and Benoni.
YOUR SUPPORT IS APPRECIATED
