Awareness Campaign

During Child Protection Week from 29 May to 2 June, the newly formed National Adoption Coalition will launch ‘Addoption’, a programme designed to draw attention to the plight of South Africa’s adoptable children and provide accurate information to birth and prospective adoptive parents, quite simply to “add adoption as an option”.

“Addoption” was born as a centralised, unified hub complete with a website and call centre to provide information and guidance for birth and prospective adoptive parents in terms of the adoption process, in fact for anyone in South Africa wanting to know more about adoption as an option. In addition it also provides an extensive database of adoption professionals across South Africa.  This is the only resource of its kind that provides both adoption information and database resources in one, consolidated format.

The key focus of ‘Addoption’ is to educate and create awareness among South Africans about adoption as an option when deciding how to deal with a crisis pregnancy, how to become an adoptive parent, or how to extend a family through adoption.  Our role is to assist the adoption community as a whole to create awareness and hence encourage the use of their services.One of the biggest challenges facing anyone in a crisis pregnancy or for anyone interested in adopting, is finding consistent and accurate information about the process and who to go to for assistance.  Through the Adoption call center on 072 521 3429 (Also available on Whatsapp) and the website at www.adoption.org.za both birth parents and adoptive parents will have access to consistent, positive adoption communication and engagement as well as immediate access to correct adoption information.
