Naledi Masipa – Capricorn District Municipality COE

With the help of Gender Links, Capricorn district council came up with a 365 day plan of action against all forms of gender based violence. The council has since started to implement the plan in all five of our municipalities. Each year, workshops to sensitize the committees on gender issues are held. Since 2010, I started involving boys in the Take a Girl to Work campaign, and as each year passes, the campaign is growing and receiving support from most organisations in the district.
