Uviwe is a registered child protection organisation (as per Children's legislation). We have as our primary objective the creation of a caring society, protective of children's rights, while focusing on the development of children and youth to improve their quality of life and to reach their full potential as economically active citizens. A special focus is maintained regarding orphaned, "at risk" and vulnerable children, child victims of crime, children in alternative care placements, as well as pre-school development (ECD), however such focus is not exclusive by nature.
Uviwe's secondary objective is to strengthen partnerships and to ensure skills and knowledge transfer to improve service delivery (according to the Department of Social Development national service norms and standards) through collaboration with established and emerging civil society organisations.

Child Centred ServiceGiven Uviwe Child & Youth Services’ new direction/paradigm shift, it is paramount that we remain a child focussed organisation with the child's well-being as the core of all decisions, projects and service delivery.
- Re-active Service Delivery: Where Uviwe Child & Youth Services’ deals with a case, the starting point is assessing the child, then the family and finally the community in which they live.
- Pro-active Service Delivery: Although the starting point may not be direct contact with a child or the family, but rather the community in which they live, the service we provide or partnership we initiate must always have the child as its core focus.
