SKA KWATA! | North West | 2017
Child Line North West – Child line is an effective non-profit organization that works collectively to protect children from all forms of violence and to create a culture of children’s rights in South Africa.
Clowns without Borders South Africa in partnership with Child Line North west have been on a performance tour called Ska kwata! (Don’t be Angry) about child abuse; visiting schools in Potchefstroom and Mafikeng area. The project’s aim was to bring awareness of different types of child abuse and emphasis on reporting any of those by calling their hotline number 08000 55555.
FEEDBACK FROM BENEFICIARIES & PARTNER
”The presentation was very helpful for us as students of the school. It involved a good lesson and a bit of fun to it. It thought us about abuse and the respect we should give to our elders.”

“The tour was a great success we have reached many people in a very short space of time, we have enjoyed working with you as partners, you have displayed high level of professionalism and we have learned a lot from you. Because of how the tour was planned we didn’t reach areas/schools in the villages that desperately need this kind intervention, we hope next time with better arrangements that we reach those schools/areas.”
