Child Survival and Development - First 1000 Days of Life
With Child mortality being labelled as a critical health issue as a result of malnutrition, lack of immunisation and access of mothers and children to medical services and health care, the first 1000 days of life became an important area for the Fund to focus on.
Child Safety and Protection -Safe Schools
This programme is aimed at ensuring child safety in schools. The Fund has drawn on its experience in this area and from various subject matter specialists.
The violence in schools manifests itself in numerous forms such as corporal punishment, bullying and sexual abuse.
Youth Leadership - Youth Think Tanks
The Youth Leadership Programme is intended to respond to the many challenges that young people are confronted with throughout South Africa. These challenges include a high rate of unemployment, poverty, crime and substance abuse. Unemployment affects a wide range of young people from matriculants to graduates.
Sustainable Livelihoods Project - (SLP)
The Fund’s Sustainable Livelihoods Project (SLP) was introduced in 2009 to address poverty experienced by families, especially in areas that have been identified by government as nodal points. These are areas that have a high rate of unemployment, low production because of various reasons and sometimes isolated in terms of securing basic services. The SLP aim to strengthen families and communities to cope with the situation of vulnerability while creating a better life and brighter future for the children.
