Child Welfare Tshwane has rendered adoption services to all communities since 1974. We have a non-discrimination policy, and the primary purpose of adoption is to provide a stable family life for those children who are legally adoptable. Child Welfare Tshwane’s Adoption Unit is registered, authorised, and dedicated to render such services to children, placing them in the permanent care of a person(s) who are not their biological parents or guardians. Adoption creates forever families for adoptable children giving them a sense of belonging and permanency within a family and home giving them stability and security to develop to their full potential and thus contributing to the community. Today’s children are tomorrow’s adults.
