Soul City participates in International Men's Day 2015

Soul City was one of many organisations who attended and participated at an International Men’s Day celebration organised by Department of Social Development at RC Elliot Hall in Galeshewe, Kimberley on the 19th November 2015. Other organizations in attendance were: loveLife Northern Cape, NACCW-Isibindi and FAMSA. The theme was “Working to expand reproductive options for me”.

The event was attended by 110 men aged between 14 and 55 years of age.

The programme was split into two sections – a plenary session and commissions. The commissions dealt with the following topics:

  1. Who Am I? (facilitated by Soul City’s Northern Cape Provincial Coordinator,  Thabiso Mathibedi
  2. Gender, Sex and Sexuality (facilitated by Tshepo Phuthane from NACCW-Isibindi)
  3. Behaviour & Motives (facilitated by Themba Malinga from FAMSA)

Plenary session was addressed by Doctor Kantane, a private doctor involved in the MMC (Medical Male Circumcision) programme in the province, and he focused on men’s health. A general consensus after the commissions was that such programmes are required on continuous basis to help equip men with necessary skills and information, and also celebrate manhood.
