Objectives

We believe that the prevention of violence (leading to rape) is one very important area to start with.

 

1. How can a boys' perception of rape be changed?

 

2. How can girls protect themselves?

 

We are looking to support the local experts and organisations doing outstanding work already.

Promoting gender quality

Through mentoring in the community, we foster positive qualities such as integrity, change, respect, passion and leadership in young men. Supporting and encouraging boys to become compassionate and responsible men plays a key role in rape prevention.

rape prevention & female empowerment

Rape has been called the silent war on women, predicted to be the top contributor to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Africa. We aim to empower young women to overcome social oppression and develop self-confidence, life skills and leadership qualities.

Post-rape care

Rape victims are face long-lasting effects that prevent them from growing into the human beings they potentially could be. We have partnered with the Thohoyandou Victim Empowerment Program to directly assist victims of sexual assault and domestic abuse.
