Product Details

Femicide in South Africa has been declared a National Crisis. But what does that mean and how bad is it? The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that 12.1 in every 100 000 women are victims of femicide in SA each year – a figure which is over 100 times worse than Italy in their newly-announced “state of crisis”, and five times worse than the global average of 2.6. However, the actual murder rate of women is even higher. The shocking reality is that a woman is murdered every three hours in South Africa.

It is not only up to the government to change things. Project Playground engages participants in discussing many types of social issues, but what is at the forefront is teaching our participants what gender-based violence and femicide mean, how to change attitudes and teach about the meaning and importance of consent, respect, speaking out against gender-based violence, passing on the information to their friends and families to start with. The classes are tailored to be appropriate for the age different age groups but we start already in our Below8 class and continue all the way to our seniors, and even our participants’ parents.

Your donation goes towards sponsoring a specialist Femicide workshop for our participants.
