STOP GBV Face Mask
STOP GBV Face Mask

This initiative was inspired by the story of a grade 7 pupil from KZN, who was raped on the way home after she had to return to collect her face mask. It is a terrible experience for any child to be denied access to the school's premises, on account of not having a face mask. With this initiative, it is our hope the teachers can have a set of masks ready in case any learner arrives without a face mask. 

 

We have chosen the following schools to be the recipients of face masks for the first phase of our drive:

  1. Fikizolo Public Primary School
  2. George Dickerson Primary School
  3. St. Mary's RC Primary School
  4. NV Cewu Public Primary School
  5. Tantyi Public School

All face masks are embroidered "STOP GBV" and "STOP RAPE". We cannot be silenced, not by GBV, and not by COVID/19. 

Through this initiative, we will also support a local business, Campus Concepts, which produced 600 of these masks.
