The Teddy Bear Foundation

Preventing and minimising the effects of child abuse in South Africa

About us

Child abuse no more

We provide efficient and professional services to prevent and minimise the devastating effects of abuse on children and their families.

Our vision is that children will not be abused anymore. But where they are being abused, our services promote children’s healing and stop any further abuse. This minimises any secondary harm to children and their families entering the child protection system.
