Youth for Christ KwaZulu- Natal hosted a Gender based Violence dialogue at Inanda (Namibia) which is one of the communities we work with. These GBV Dialogues and campaigns have been running for a while and Youth for Christ intends on making it a habit to have them more often.
During the event it was highlighted that Inanda community is leading with the GBV cases especially rape. “As an organisation we are working very hard to spread the awareness and partner with other stakeholders in order to reach a large number of people. Victims need to understand that they are not alone, we are willing to support and stand behind them until the end”, said Thula from Change Agents.
Amongst the stakeholders there was SAPS and Life line to take about their service and how to report the perpetrators. The community members were pleased to see the organisations taking up on such a big role to try and help their community during these difficult times.
