These shocking events and statistics are not new to us. Every time we read the news or turn on electronic and social media we are battered by escalating levels of abuse towards women and girls occurring in our communities daily. We need all South Africans to stand together and speak out.

We believe if women have access to skills, knowledge and resources they will create solutions for themselves and those around them. For the past 15 years we have partnered with NPOs and invested in over 900 women-led organisations to support their communities and advocate against gender-based violence. networking opportunities.

How can YOU get involved?

“I am convinced that by working together, by confronting difficult issues, and by mobilising all South Africans, we shall create a society where women and children feel safe and are safe at all times and in all places.”

President Cyril Ramaposa called all South Africans to action. We now call all South Africans to Action!
