Speak out about crimes against children – Cyril Ramaphosa

"It is crucial for parents to know their children’s whereabouts at all times.  They must also have open communication lines with their children in order for children to feel free to express themselves to their parents. 
Community members should never feel that they are intruding by reporting suspected child abuse and/or neglect as this can potentially save the life of a child.  The Children’s Act actually prescribes that any concerned person should report to the relevant authorities such as Child Welfare Tshwane or SAPS.
As a Child Protection NGO we as Child Welfare Tshwane rely heavily on the goodwill of our community members to see to it that we can continue to render vital services to our communities’ children and families." Dineo Daly Risk Assessment Manager of Child Welfare Thswane

Transparency refers to the lack of  hidden agendas and conditions accompanied by the availability of information required for collaboration and cooperation and collective decision making. It should be noted that transparency does not mean the opening up of intellectual property  files or classified documents.
A company's  actions impacts its stakeholders and employees, shareholders, clients and suppliers. To be a successful and trusted organisation it is important to build  a confidence of its stakeholders.  It is of utmost importance that transparency is articulated and practiced  in every organisation.

The way you perform your duties will have a permanent impact on not only the life of that child, but also the lives of other role players like parents, grandparents, siblings, other family members, care givers and the like.” Mr. Neels Campher said.

During the meeting, the official annual general report was distributed to individuals’ present and official procedures including the appointment of Auditors, Patrons, Champions and Ambassadors and School Fundraising Awards was completed.
