Hear me: An open letter to South Africa from a survivor!

“Fear me, because I’m standing up for my country and her people. Fear me because I rage against the darkness. Fear me because I’m one of many voices, one of many sparks that will set the pulse of Africa alight.”

A rather thought provoking video relevant considering recent activism against gender violence

This powerful poem by singer-songwriter Halsey about sexual abuse reduced many in the crowd to tears at the New York City Women’s March.

Warning: her poem contains themes that some viewers may find distressing.

 

 

Cathryn Hempel commenting on Talhado Children’s Haven

We need some strong men in our community able to give an hour a week (or even a month) to come in and mentor some of the children, particularly boys, in our community. Nigel Harvey thank you for starting the ball rolling. Let’s see if other strong men will follow.
Talhado Children’s Haven can provide the venue in the afternoons. We run an aftercare programme for primary and high school children.
