Meaning of CAPFSA Logo

The CAFPSA (Child Accident Prevention Foundation of Southern Africa) Logo signifies the balance between cautious controlled behaviour and normal adventurous childhood activities and behaviour. A child's life represents a balance between natural abandon of childhood and essential controls that ensure the safety of the child. It is this precarious balance, which is captured in the logo of CAPFSA. The losses incurred when the balance is disturbed can be enormous.

In 2008, CAPFSA began to use the new name “Childsafe South Africa” to better represent the goals of the organisation (to make South Africa a safer country for children). It is an easier to utilise name, more marketable and more likely to be understood.
