I am not part of it

The month of August celebrates women in South Africa and we take this opportunity to join WiA (Women in Action) in their activities for the month.

This year a silent march was held through the streets of Soweto with 25,000 participants (as reported by the JMPD that day) who walked in absolute silence to send their message against violence and abuse of women and children. Their slogan was “I am not part of it”  — meaning “I don’t abuse, ” “I don’t condone abuse by turning a blind eye” and “I don’t abuse myself with thoughts of low self- esteem, complexes, self mutilation or suicidal thoughts.”

Rahab counsellors will be available throughout the month to help women who might be dealing with any of the conditions relating to violence, abuse or those mentioned here. If you would like to set up  an appointment, please send us a message to woman2woman@uckg.org.za or  call our Help Line 0861 330 320. Please note that every case is treated with dignity and confidentiality.

    I was not able to speak in front of many people even to look someone on the face when I speak.
    And could not say no if I don’t like anything

    We don’t need to turn a blind eye to abuse, we need to be strong and say ”no to abuse. ” Even to yourself, you can not accept abuse. Let’s brake the silent, and take away the low self-esteem.

    It is truly a blessing to be part of such a movement and im sure that the purpose behind such was reached.
    In one way or the other we are all affected, if not, directly involved in some sort of abuse.

    I believe that such movements should keep being incited in our minds throughout the whole year for as long as there’s a need to make someone feel better a boy themselves and realise that they are not alone….it’s worth it.

    Blessed day for those who were marching indeed

    The March was very a blessing and speaking against violence is a good sign to show that us women don’t approve to be abused and hurt ,I learned a lot and the Bishop’s prayer blessed us women the . indeed God blessed us

    Je suis joyeuse parce que le peuple a un bon projet. Nous constatons que le Hollywood après la transformation apprend aux femmes et aux enfants de ne pas accepter d’être maltraité et ce laisser abuser par les autres.
