Violence against women and children is not just a government or criminal justice system problem, but is a societal challenge which needs to be fought from all fronts.

This was the message at the Sarah Baartman/Kouga launch of the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children awareness campaign at the KwaNomzamo Community Hall on Friday (24 November).

The international campaign takes place annually between 25 November and 10 December, mobilising communities behind the call to end violence against women and children.

The period includes Universal Children’s Day and World Aids Day.

This year’s theme is: “Count me in: Together moving a non-violent South Africa forward.”

The programme took the form of a social dialogue, with communities given a platform to raise challenges and possible solutions in the struggle against gender-based violence.

Various speakers from the Sarah Baartman District and Kouga municipalities, Department of Social Development, Child Welfare and the Victim Support Centre also took the stage to share information with those in attendance.

At the event Kouga Social Services Portfolio Councillor Daniel Benson said it was important that people understood their role in fighting the scourge.

“The solution lies with all of us and we must never rest and be comfortable with living side by side with abuse. Failure for us to hold hands will result in all efforts failing to eradicate this scourge in our communities,” he said.

Benson said as part of the campaign, the municipality encouraged residents to show support by wearing a white ribbon which is a symbol of peace and a commitment to never commit or condone violence against women and children.

The municipality, working with the different stakeholders, will be holding a number of awareness campaigns across Kouga during this period.

For more information and to get involved, contact the municipality’s Special Programmes Officer Vuyani Zana on 042 200 8334 or email vzana@kouga.gov.za.
