Crisis counselling for Raped and Abused Women and Children
This is a desperate need in Kayamandi. A counselor has been appointed to be available to meet with victims as soon as possible after an assault to provide in-depth counseling and assistance in prosecuting offenders.
We are also involved with teaching the community to make them more aware of how to protect themselves from abuse. Rape prevention skills are taught in local schools to empower children to protect themselves. A project which has grown out of the above project is our playgroups!
- Funds to provide the rape counselling
- Funds to appoint other counselors as there is only one counselor available presently
- Funds to send the counselors for further training
