Raising Voices

Young women from Rise Clubs have been taken through a training in advocacy, CEDAW and using social media for good. The programme called "Raising Voices" sponsored by the EU aims to ensure that young women have a voice in policies that affect them.

The Rise clubs are reinforced and extended through the Rise Talk Show and the Rise Facebook page.

RAISING Voices Advocacy: Rise Club members and field workers are trained in feminism, social media and advocacy bringing their own voices to the fore.

An EU funded programme has produced remarkable results:

When 2 children were kidnapped and later found dead, Raising Voices advocates together with the community of Emalahleni marched to the magistrate to say no to giving bail to the accused. They said they want justice, and to live in communities where they feel safe. #RaisingVoices EU in South Africa.
