The Department of Planning,
Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) will host a community service delivery
Imbizo in Soweto as part of 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women
and Children campaign.
The 16 Days of Activism
for No Violence against Women and Children campaign takes place from 25
November to 10 December 2017. This year the campaign is held under the theme:
“Count Me In: Together Moving a Non-Violent South Africa Forward”.
Over the period of 16
days, government will convene a series of dialogues on Violence against Women
and Children campaign to focus on the problem, discuss the causes and to find
appropriate solutions. The dialogue sessions respond to the NDP Vision for 2030
which emphasizes, “Building safer communities through an integrated approach”.
The 16 Days Campaign is
not viewed as a stand-alone event, it is another leg of the #356Days of
Activism Campaign and #CountMeIn, which aims to mobilize members of society,
especially men to join hands with government in the fight to curb Violence
against Women and Children.
