NPOs need government support

Basha Taylor, founder of NPO Women and Beyond

A UCT student was raped and killed. A child was kidnapped from school.

The numbers are increasing by the day.

Outraged and frustrated, where do we get help?

Women and Beyond raises awareness at schools, teaching young girls about how to protect themselves but is this enough?

We visit primary schools and tell these children that a loved one or someone they don’t know can hurt or harm them but is this enough?

Sadly, right now, we have reached a crisis point.

It’s sad that until today government doesn’t support organisations such as Women and Beyond.

Since 2009 I know of several women and children centres that have been closed due to no support.
