The Child Reintegration Centre commemorated the Day of the African Child on June 16th. The Day of the African Child, has been celebrated on June 16 every year since 1991, when it was first initiated by the Organization of African Unity. It honors those who participated in the Soweto Uprising in 1976, where thousands of South African schoolchildren protested against the apartheid government's use of Afrikaans as the language of instruction in schools.
Today, the Day of the African Child is a time to celebrate the rights of children and to raise awareness of the challenges they face. The topic for this year's celebration at the CRC was on “No Violence” for the coming general election that was held on 24th June 2023.
Twenty Families were invited to commemorate with the CRC family while 10 children were invited by the Social Welfare to celebrate and listen to statements made by stakeholders. All the speakers advised and spoke on issues of how to protect their children from getting involved in activities of violence.
