Responding to the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and its devastating effects on the lives of so many South African children, the NACCW has developed a model of care called 'Isibindi'. Operated as a social franchise, the model has been recognized by government and other agencies as providing excellent cost-effective services to children living in affected households.


The National Association of Child Care Workers
We are a registered non-profit organization working independently to promote optimal standards of care for orphaned, vulnerable and at-risk children and youth.

A unique professional association, the NACCW comprises a membership body as well as a professional services section undertaking a range of activities aimed at improving the quality of life for children and families - particularly those affected by HIV/AIDS and poverty.

All NACCW activities are focused on improving the quality of services provided to at-risk children and youth through developing the abilities of those who work directly with them - child and youth care workers.

"No one is born a good citizen; no nation is born a democracy. Rather, both are processes that continue to evolve over a lifetime. Young people must be included from birth. A society that cuts off from its youth severs its lifeline." - Kofi Annan
