Established in 1999, the GCRC was initially a provincial structure of the National Children’s Rights Committee. The Gauteng Children’s Right Committee acquired independent legal status in 2004.

The main objective of The Gauteng Children’s Rights Committee is to promote and protect the rights of children in Gauteng.

Four main areas of children’s rights are addressed:

The right of a child to:
  • protection, development, survival and participation as outlined in the following policy and legislative framework:
    1. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
    2. Section 28 of the Bill of Rights in the SA Constitution.
    3. The African Charter for the Rights and Welfare of the Child.
The goals of GCRC are as follows:
  • To facilitate all activities and programmes aimed at protecting and safeguarding the rights and responsibilities of children.
  • To capacitate children to know their rights and responsibilities in order to deal with their rights problem issues effectively.
