Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and the government will join hands to support the 16 days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children. This campaign for no violence against women and children is held all over the world between  the 25th of November and the 10th of December. South Africa took a step further in 2013 to not only make it 16 Days of Activism against Violence on Women and Children but increased it to be 365 days.

 

The SABC will internally launch and re-pledge support to this campaign and staff members will demonstrate support for the No Violence against Women and Children campaign through a hand painting activity, termed ‘These hands do not commit violence’.  Ms. Shenda Moses stated, the manager Employment Equity and Transformation stated that: “It is the responsibility of each one of us to increase the awareness of the negative impact of violence against women and children, and to speak up against women and child abuse.”

 

The SABC will also hold an exhibition on Thursday,24 August 2014, at SABC Radio Park Foyer with organizations such as SAPS (South African Police Service), POWA (People opposing Women), Genderlinks, Zazi/ Brothers, Optimystic Bikers Against Abuse, Tears (Bringing Hope and Healing) and Sonke Gender Justice who support the campaign.
