About Us

A child is raped in SA every 3 minutes. Most of them are young girls between 8 and 12. In more of 80% of the cases they know the rapist. Most of the cases are never reported. Last year we helped more than 20 000 of the children who reported the abuse.

MAB GOALS:

Secondary Goal: To minimise the secondary abuse children suffer when they report abuse against them.

Primary: “Getting conversation going” To prevent more child abuse from hap-pening by securing more reporting. To mobilise communities to start speaking about child abuse. To educate communities on what child abuse is, signs and symptoms and how to report it. To educate the public and children on reporting, highlight myths and facts of child abuse and to mobilise the community to start reporting.
