Lessons about positive parenting

The Sinovuyo Caring Families project

The Sinovuyo project’s goal is to build an evidence base for a low-cost scalable parenting programme that prevents maltreatment and child conduct problems, and meets the challenge of feasibility in low-income countries.

Ilifa supported the development of the project as a collaboration with academic institutions (the Universities of Cape Town, Bangor and Oxford), local NGOs (Clowns Without Borders SA, Ikamva Labantu and The Parent Centre), and international agencies (the World Health Organisation and UNICEF).

This article describes the programme, and discusses Sinovuyo’s potential for integration into wider ECD delivery systems.
