RAPCAN was awarded in London with the Stars Impact Award 2007. The NGO from Cape Town for child protection won the award for its work in the past year.

The organisation RAPCAN, Resources Aimed at the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect, got the award by the UK based STARS foundation.

They work to improve the lives of disadvantage children around the world. Therefore, Stars also supports organisations which are committed to improve the health, education and protection services for children.

"RAPCAN is a positive example of effective and inspiring work which brings genuine benefit where it is needed most," says Chief Executive Officer of the Start Foundation Muna Wehbe.

The award provides 100 000 dollars of unrestricted funding and an additional consultancy support to meet the needs of the winners.
