LIONESS PRIDE MOVEMENT | All Rights Reserved 2021
our focus
GENDER BASED VIOLENCE The main challenge in addressing Gender Based Violence (GBV) is that policies regarding the judiciary and legal system that needs to change. As a movement we want perpetrators to receive harsher punishment and longer jail time. We also petition for more support towards the victims, especially emotionally, spiritually and financially. We would also like the South African Police to reinstall the Women and Child Protection Units and mobilise members who specialize in assisting victims. ONLINE EVENTS Many women in communities and rural areas are ignorant of critical information which empowers them and their children. This results in them unable to empower their children and providing for their children comprehensively. The online events are designed to assist women in their communities through edutainment which is a combination of entertainment and education. Topics include: Personal Development Spiritual Development Health awareness Financial Management Starting your own business Legal Aid- Know Your Rights SOUNDING BOARD To create a sounding board service for people in distress and contemplating suicide. We believe prevention is better than cure. The current pressures in our communities and broader society has become a socio – economic and moral problem. The increase in suicide and the ages of children committing suicide has increased and has become younger (8 being the youngest) Children prefer not to speak to adults because sometimes the adults are the problem or they feel adults do not understand. The Sounding Board is an initiative to assist people in schools, social media and community. Training All soundingboards will be trained by experts and professionals. The soundingboard will, listen with empathy, coach and facilitate, take notes and convey to the project leader / psychologist or social worker. Most of the service will be done online and if necessary, on a one on one basis. ECONOMIC TRANSFORMATION AND JOB CREATION Over the years the inequalities in the workplace has increased exponentially. The minority groups are almost extinct and this happened under the watch of the people who have the economical strength, namely the minorities. We are embarking on creating awareness of the fact that chain stores are not employing minorities yet, that same group are their patrons. We will engage with store owners to ensure that people from the minority groups are representative in terms of the workforce. SAVING HANDS IN THE COMMUNITY From time to time we initiate social drives which will assist different beneficiaries. The current drives include sanitary pad drives, Ivermectin drives, save my favourite restaurant drives. These drives represents the tangible and practical assistance we give to our communities with the support of our patrons. The patrons consists of families, friends and broader social networks. As the time goes by more drives will be initiated. EDUCATION We believe in the Empowerment of women and their children in order for them to secure a bright future. It is a challenge for most parents to financially support their children after high school, the result is that these children struggle to be employed, they end up at home struggling, demotivated and disheartened. We will change that by engaging with Corporate Companies to assist in sponsorships and employment post studies. This will break the cycle of unemployment, poverty and crime. The children who will be assisted will be required to have excellent matric results to show that they are hard-working and committed to their own success.
