‘Keeping Women and Children Safe Should Come Naturally’ – Executive Mayor

Annually, from 25 November to 10 December, the world shines a light on the international fight against gender-based violence (GBV) as part of the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children Campaign. This year’s theme is UNITE! Invest to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls .

Three years ago, the Executive Mayor and City Manager, on behalf of Drakenstein Municipality, pledged our commitment to not only fight GBV during the month of November but the entire 365 days of each year. Collaborating with various stakeholders, the Municipality continues to organise awareness-raising campaigns, programmes, and motivational talks to empower victims of abuse to speak up.
