SAPPIN, the South African Parenting Programme Implementers Network, is a network of NGOs that use evidence-based research to develop parenting programmes across South Africa.
Member organisations develop and run various programmes that guide and support parents and caregivers, to foster safe, warm, secure, non-violent home environments that allow children to reach their full potential.
SAPPIN promotes mutual support and learning and advocates for the importance of quality parenting programmes in communities where they are needed.
The purpose of the network is to strengthen the voice of civil society working with families through collaboration and shared learning.
For the SAPPIN network to effectively develop and implement quality parenting programmes and interventions, it is guided by an intrinsic set of values.
Lefika La Phodiso's work is strengthened by being able to offer programmes for parents in their community. This film demonstrates the benefit of being part of the SAPPIN Network and the impact of Lefika La Phodiso's work with parents.
