About Bobbi Bear

Operation Bobbi Bear is a human rights organisation committed to helping sexually abused children in Amanzimtoti, Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa.

 

A “Bobbi Bear” is a non-threatening means (toy) for child victims of sexual abuse to communicate the nature of the abuse, crossing all language barriers and preventing secondary abuse at the point of rescue.

 

It provides a better understanding of actual events and enables the initiation of appropriate HIV and AIDS interventions.

 

Our success rate is testament to our organisation’s training programmes. We rescue and provide safe homes for abused children, work with the criminal justice system to prosecute perpetrators, educate individuals and communities, and much, much more.
