The Teddy Bear Clinic

Teddy Bear Clinic logo
The Teddy Bear Clinic for Abused Children (TTBC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring abused children are protected and rehabilitated. We provide therapy, counseling, assistance, love, comfort, safety and ongoing support to children who have been abused. The Teddy Bear Clinic works with children, parents and communities – empowering them with knowledge and skills so that we can help put an end to child abuse.

We also proactively approach schools to provide education to the learners and training to the teachers in order to prevent any abuse that may happen in their day-to-day lives.

The Teddy Bear Clinic for Abused Children (TTBC) originated in 1986 in response to an urgent need for medical examinations for sexually abused children. From there it has grown into a fully fledged service for abused children which includes:

  • Forensic medical examinations
  • Forensic assessments
  • Counseling
  • Psychological testing
  • A diversion programme for youth sexual offenders.
