Why we do it

“Every young person needs to know that there is at least one adult who is rooting for him, who believes in him completely and who will walk alongside of him through the transition from childhood to adulthood. Oftentimes with traumatised young people, this adult is the child and youth care worker.” South African Child and Youth Care Trainer.

It is important to understand the complexity of socio-economic circumstances facing a young South African. Abject poverty, chronic illness, poor standard of education, abuse, trauma, gender-based violence, radical substance abuse statistics are all emphasised problems pertaining to our young people.
