For Immediate Release

UNITED WE STAND ON ENDING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN

 

In the spirit of Thuma Mina, SENTECH has harkened to the call to action to be part of the 100 Years of Nelson Mandela and Albertina Sisulu: Men’s March Against Violence on Women and Children on 10 July 2018, 10am at Church Square, Pretoria.

 

n marching together with business organisations, civil society groupings and government we are demonstrating a united resolve to fight the scourge of violence against women and children.

The march draws 100 men from different categories across our society to create a visible front of men marching together to show their commitment to making South Africa safer for women and children.

The scourge of violence against women and children is a huge threat to our development as a nation. On average, one in five South African women older than 18 has experienced physical violence.

The 100 Years of Nelson Mandela and Albertina Sisulu: Men’s March against Violence on Women and Children on 10 July 2018 will begin at Church Square at 10am and make its way to the southern lawns of the Union Buildings.

He said the deliberation at the Assembly of Parties should ensure that ITSO is more relevant in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
