16 Days of Activism against gender violence- in Mahikeng,South Africa

By Maisha Yetu Staff writer

The 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children is a United Nations campaign. It takes place annually from the 25th November (International Day of No Violence against Women) to the 10th December (International Human Rights Day). Since 1999 the South African Government has run a parallel campaign that includes issues relating to violence against children. This campaign focuses primarily on generating an increased awareness of the negative impact of violence on women and children as well as society as a whole.

Amongst other activities such as attending the COP 17 Durban summit,South African based Trust PAYT invited Maisha Yetu to participate and mark the last day of the 16 Days of Activism against gender violence at Lepard park in Mahikeng, South Africa.
