GCF hosted a training in ‘Victim Empowerment and Trauma Support Work’ last week. It was facilitated by Mam Sylvia Nomkhosi Mdluli from Machovin Trading, who with her expertise and experience engaged 17 participants from different wards in the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality.

The idea is to build safe and peaceful communities by strengthening the human rights culture and provide more effective, multi-sectoral, coordinated responses to victims of crime and trauma.

The participants are now included in a network, which will not only respond to the needs of victims where they reside, but also act preventative and #StrongerTogethern#victimempowermentmE#traumasupportraumaSupport

Every time your teens step out your door, they are facing a cruel world. Is it any surprise then, that they sometimes react to that high stress by picking on a sibling, or even you?

If your young person is “different” in any way, “a loner”, their clothes, their hair, the way they speak, if they are boffins, if they are dreamers, if they happen to get targeted by an insecure person who at a click of a button can get a rumour out on the smart phone, it feels like ๐’•๐’‰๐’†๐’Š๐’“ ๐’˜๐’๐’“๐’๐’… ๐’Š๐’” ๐’‚๐’๐’ ๐’๐’—๐’†๐’“ now.
