National Children and Violence Trust (NCVT) is a Non-Profit Organization that functions to support vulnerable groups such as the abused and violated children, women, the unemployed, people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS in some of the most impoverished informal settlements in Gauteng. The poor socio-economic conditions, low education levels and the inefficient access to health services provide further insights into factors affecting life-style and well-being of the people with whom National Children and Violence Trust works. The communities are located in the informal settlements of Diepsloot, Loss My Cherry, Riverbend, Lanseria, and Cosmo City. These areas are subjected to high incidences of violence and trauma.
Our aim is to address the effects of trauma induced by violence, abuse, poverty, inequality, unemployment and HIV/AIDS by providing services that will ensure emotional well-being and the observation of children’s rights and human rights. This is in support of National Children and Violence Trust’s vision of a society where children’s well-being and their rights are protected, preserved and upheld.
