Children Safeguarding Affairs Foundation (C-SAF) was founded in 2012 out of a desire to see the eradication of child abuse in Ghana. C-SAF advocates a culture of zero tolerance to child abuse in
the Ghanaian society: physically, sexually, emotionally and neglected.
Since its inception, we have worked hard to raise awareness of the depth of child abuse in Ghana and pushed for systems to be put in place for the identification and recognition of abuse. C-SAF is in continued discussions with Educational Institutions and Faith Organisations to play a part in providing training to students and pupils. C-SAF is pushing for heightened awareness of child abuse by providing workshops in faith organisations, schools, agencies, and higher educational institutions.
C-SAF has written proposals to Ghana medical and nursing Schools in Accra and Kumasi, recommending the introduction of child protection training for students. We believe that when students are educated on the short and long term implications of abuse, they will then have the knowledge to prevent and raise the awareness of abuse when they go on to to work with children, and will then be able to recognise abuse and response appropriately to it.
As a small team C-SAF adopts a focused approach to delivering it's educational programmes and other activities. This work is carried out by professionals and with the help of hand picked volunteers and we are always on the lookout for passionate and engaging people.
