Page 78 Annexure A Draft 4.10, October 2003 3. Department of Communications (DC) Policy measures requiring the attention of the above institution, as provided for in the CLAP, are collated below. Cross-refer to the number of the action step in the main text for a discussion of the background. (18) A national public awareness campaign on child labour should be designed and implemented: substantial initial campaign with a sustained presence thereafter. Lead institution: DL. Secondary institutions: NPA, CLIG, SAPS,DJ, DC (each regarding its own line function), NGOs. New policy? Yes. Once-off cost: significant. Recurrent cost: significant. ILO funding: to cover initial design and part of initial implementation, the remainder having to be borne by the relevant line department. Time line: to be introduced as soon as possible after adoption of policy; initial stage of campaign to run over three years. (20) The national public awareness campaign should highlight trafficking of children, and should in this respect be aimed at a range of audiences, including children, parents, teachers, perpetrators and intermediaries involved in trafficking, and the general public. Lead institution: DSD*. Secondary institutions: BSA, DC, DE, DSD, DL and SAPS. Costs and time line: see (18). 4. Department of Correctional Services (DCS) Policy measures requiring the attention of the above institution, as provided for in the CLAP, are collated below. Cross-refer to the number of the action step in the main text for a discussion of the background. (57) Where children commit crimes, the diversion of such child offenders away for prison (including community service) should be the preferred option for children. Where appropriate, prosecution of a child should be converted to a children's court inquiry, after conviction.Lead institution: DJ*. Secondary institutions: DSD* (assistance with diversion), NProsAuth* (prosecution of those behind children, and diversion programmes), SAPS (identification of those using children who are in conflict with the law, and investigation of cases against them) and DCS. New policy? Policy proposed in the Child Justice Bill, but not yet finally adopted. Once off cost: moderate, but already costed through the Child Justice Bill process. Recurrent cost: Moderate. It should eventually ease spending pressure on SAPS, by the imprisonment of the perpetrators behind the children in conflict with the law. The effect of diversion programmes should be to ease the strain on the budget of DCS. In due course therefore moderate to significant saving, if effective, as costed in the Child Justice Bill process. Time line: within one year of adoption of policy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
