Project Aspis is a student-driven community service project of the Department of Criminology at Unisa. It comprises three days' practical training after which students visit primary schools to empower the teachers to recognise children who are physically, sexually and emotionally abused. This article highlights the basic content of the presentation as well as the teachers' response. The writer had the privilege of presenting this child abuse prevention programme at the Fourth International Conference on the Child on 13 to 15 October, 1999, in Montreal, Canada with the financial aid of the National Research Foundation (Division for Social Sciences and Humanities).
