Impilo, a designated child protection organisation with adoption accreditation for national and intercountry adoptions, places children in temporary safe care while carrying out intensive social work and child protection services so that children can be placed in a permanent family environment as early as possible after removal. At any given time, we provide services in the Gauteng region to about 150 children who are orphaned, vulnerable or abandoned. Typically, 13% to 19% of children cared for in a year will be refugees or asylum-seekers. We provide services to children up to 18 years old; however, 90% of the children we serve are under 6 years of age. Impilo is registered as a Non-Profit Organisation (055-213-NPO), Non Profit Company (NPC- 2003/012123/08) and Public Benefit Organisation (PBO – 930005449).
