A Description Selected Interventions for the Care of Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe
A Description Selected Interventions for the Care of Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe
Funded by the WK Kellogg Foundation
Phetsile K Dlamini
If you are sitting in a South African school or university right now, you need to put aside 1948 and "Bantu Education" as a primary target of enquiry – these were little more than steps along a road that was already paved – and study when, where and how your institution came into being in the first place. This book joins the growing body of work (much of it by South African scholars) displacing the many mind-numbingly dull texts loaded with assumptions and logics that, in the case of South Africa, reify a simplified colonial explanation of the past. Generations of students, educators and policymakers have suffered enough through tedious though inaccurate history books disguised as dispassionate, impartial views of "the facts."

Sexual Abuse of Young Children in Southern Africa
Sexual Abuse of Young Children in Southern Africa
Linda Richter, Andrew Dawes, Craig Higson-Smith (eds)

In this volume, experts – including service providers, therapists, children’s advocates, and the research community – summarise and evaluate the problem of the sexual abuse of prepubescent children in southern Africa. It is the first attempt to synthesise southern African research, treatment and policy literature on the topic. The book confronts the realities of sexual abuse, and its representation in the press. It presents the main findings concerning the individual, socio-economic and sociocultural correlates of sexual abuse, and covers legal and policy responses to the problem. It also presents accounts of interventions drawn from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
