Voice of the Child Campaign
What is Voice of the Child, and why are we adamant to reach at least 200,000 people in this campaign?
Voice of the Child (VOC) was implemented following specifically Section 10 of the Children’s Act 38 of 2005, which states the following:
“Every child that is of such an age, maturity, and stage of development as to be able to participate in any matter concerning that child has the right to participate in an appropriate way and views expressed by the child must be given due consideration.”
Voice of the Child therefore forms part of our standard Mediation Process and is a vital initiative aimed at amplifying the perspectives and needs of children in various contexts. It provides a platform for children to express their thoughts, feelings, and concerns, ensuring their voices are heard and considered in decision-making processes regarding decisions that affect them in divorce or similar situations.
Our commitment to reaching at least 200,000 people in our VOC campaign is driven by the belief that a broader outreach enhances the representativeness of the gathered insights. By engaging a substantial number of individuals, including parents, guardians, educators, and professionals, we aspire to create a more inclusive and informed dialogue that truly reflects the diverse experiences and needs of children, ultimately fostering a more child-centric approach.
