If you have had a parent in prison - or you know children who have - this is a call to action.
Seeds of Affinity is looking to give children (adult or otherwise) a voice.
All experiences are unique. However we know all children are voiceless in the system and more needs to be done to improve their experiences and life opportunities.
This is unlikely to happen unless children speak out about their experiences. If you can lend a hand, this would be greatly appreciated. In the short term, we need three or four people (adults and/or youth) to join us in our advocacy initiative and media campaign 'Every Woman and Child'.
This is also an opportunity to share your experiences and suggest ways of further supporting children.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org (attention 'Every woman and child'). We acknowledge this is a very sensitive area. All correspondence will be treated in the strictest confidence.
I was pleased to have the opportunity to support an initiative which represented the work of women who are very much in need of gainful employment and the support which is derived from the group setting. I am aware from my own work of the benefits that the program has produced in the lives of women who have participated. - Greg Mead, Senior Counsel, Legal Services Commission of SA
