Children in South Africa live in a society with a Constitution that has the highest regard for their rights and for the equality and dignity of everyone. As part of Child Protection Week (CPW) , Dr Hendrietta Bogopane-Zulu will on Tuesday, 21 May  conduct Integrated Community Registration Outreach Programme (ICROP) at Disaneng Tribal Council in the North West Province.


CPW is commemorated annually from the last Sunday in May for one week till the  beginning of June to raise awareness of the rights of children as articulated in the  Constitution of Republic of South Africa and Children’s Act (Act No 38 of 2005). Observed under the theme Protecting South Africa’s Children 30 years on.


Government has invested in children through various services like education, health, access to clean water, health, electricity and currently has the biggest social assistance programme aimed at protecting children.


The ICROP will bring together Social Development and its public entities—the National Development Agency (NDA) and the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) in collaboration with the Departments of Health and Home Affairs. The aim is to improve citizens’ interaction with government institutions, as well as help increase public awareness of government services in a localised manner.
