Congratulations to everyone in Piketberg and the greater Bergriver area for participating and successfully completing The GBV Ambassadors First Responders Training, which was hosted from 19-21 September 2022 and 4 – 5 October 2022.

A huge thank you to Jeremy Maarman and team at the Initiative for Community Advancement (ICA) and Lache Woldson-Samuels of MTN-SA for the contribution towards the success of the programme.

The objective of the training is to reduce cultural, societal and systemic barriers that limits women’s safety and to provide training in counselling, ultimately eradicating the prevalence of GBV.

The training covered a broad spectrum of topics geared towards equipping community workers as Ambassadors for the fight against GBV.
