The State of the South African Child Report provides a comprehensive assessment of the prevailing issues faced by our children in South Africa. The report further sheds light on the alarming rates of violence, poverty, inequality, and inadequate access to essential services that continue to hinder the survival, growth, and development of children.

It is hoped that the report will galvanise collective action, ignite meaningful conversations, and inspire innovative solutions.

Together, we can build a legacy worth of our children.
