the infant trust is a UK based charity that helps to break the cycle of violence and abuse against small children in South Africa.
At the latest count we have, with our partners in South Africa, helped to protect over one million young children from abuse through our training and support programmes. We have trained over three and a half thousand women, and some men, to recognise and act on issues of child protection. We have been active since 2005 and it has been a huge pleasure and privilege to work with some extraordinarily inspirational people in South Africa, we thank you all.
The infant trust will close in February 2018.
A massive thank you to all our Patrons, our trustees, our helpers, our donors and our supporters, we absolutely could not have achieved anything without you. Underneath all the problems South Africa is a country teeming with talent and opportunity. God Bless all our friends and partners, we know the work will continue.
This award is so deserved and we owe you so much for all your efforts in South Africa – the legacy of your training and protection lives on in South Africa.
With much appreciation
