Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust will have a bus tour in the Western Cape during the 16 Days of Activism to End Violence against Women and Children. The bus tour will start the 26th of November and will end the 8th of December.
“In the bus we will have volunteer trainers, community activists and councillors. In the communities of the Western Cape they will give workshops, network meetings, training and counselling on issues relating to rape and sexual violence,” says counselling coordinator Nazma Hendricks.
Rape Crisis Cape Town was established in 1976. It is one of the oldest organisations in South Africa working in the sexual violence sector.
“We cannot turn away from the horror of what is happening in our streets, schools and homes. We need to work together to turn this crisis around and change the society that we live in,” says Hendriks.
