Welcome to Rata Social Services

Our dream is to have a child protection response in every community, starting with our member organisations, then every ward of different local municipality.

Rata Social Services – Since 1948 we have been changing lives, by growing the potential of all vulnerable children, families and communities. As a registered welfare organisation we dedicate ourselves to enhance the quality of life of all people through the protection of children against all forms of abuse, implementation of programmes to strengthen family bonds and to uplift communities through outreach programmes. We invest emotionally in people. At least 54,000 people benefited from our services during the past year. We believe in the potential of every individual to become the best that they can be with what they have.

We do what only a few people can

We change lives by
