COMMUNITY KEEPERS is partnering with the National Development Agency – NDA in the implementation of a multi-faceted awareness campaign on #bullying and gender-based violence #GBV, targeting 28 primary and high schools.
The campaign aims to shift deep-seated attitudes and behaviours as part of a national effort in the prevention and management of all forms of harassment. Our programme takes a holistic approach including learners, educators, parents and caregivers.
The #WesternCape has been described as “the most dangerous province for children” with four children murdered per week. In 2019, nearly 37,000 children in the Western Cape were removed from their homes, as their homes were deemed “dangerous due to the prevalence of traumatic events including negligence, abuse and rape.”
During the course of the campaign, we will share all the materials via our social media platforms and will make them available for free download and free use in other schools, youth clubs and organisations. We welcome collaboration and invite you to contact us for more information or to be added to our database.
