The Committee for Crime Prevention, Northern Cape, was established in 1995 in response to the high crime rate in the province. Their aim is to reintegrate at-risk street children back into the community. They use a holistic approach, known as a “grip” strategy, which assists homeless, street and out-of-school children and their families living in extreme poverty. The Vodacom Foundation has also funded training projects in woodwork and needlework for 48 learners.
The Orlando Children's Home was established in 1940, to cater for children who are abandoned, lost, orphaned, abused, or affected and infected by the HIV virus. The aim of the organisation is to provide a structured environment for them to grow up and become responsible, productive members of the community. In addition, OCH tries to place children with well-functioning homes, through foster care and adoption. Lost children are re-united with their families.
WMACA’s main objective is to provide a basket of services to abused and vulnerable children, and their parents, and to educate and empower children to prevent abuse.

Support and therapy are also provided to the non-offending members of the child's family.
