Being at the first stage has allowed me to see all the different aspects of running a nonprofit organization geared towards empowering abused women and educating others on domestic violence. I have seen firsthand how important the work these shelters do is to creating social change on a small and large scale. During my time here, I have seen many courageous women seek shelter at St. Anne’s during their most vulnerable, and leave with a newfound confidence and hope for the future. I have seen shy quiet children become energetic and joyful. I have seen a tangible change that needs to continue. The St. Anne’s staff is breaking the perpetuation of and stigma around domestic violence and they need your help to accomplish this.
Currently, the nonprofit is facing a financial crisis. Without sufficient funds, St. Anne’s cannot function to its full potential. During my time here, I have found a home at St. Anne’s. I am reaching out to friends, family, and anyone else who would like to be a part of the St. Anne’s family as well, to donate. Currently, one out of six women in South Africa is a victim of domestic violence. The work being done here at St. Anne’s is helping to reduce this statistic. Please help St. Anne’s change the lives of not only the women and children at our shelters, but also Cape Town’s community at large.
Donations made to the organization will be used to buy new beds, replace dressers, purchase bed sheets, stock the food pantry, repair the shelters’ walls, clothe the women and children, and more. All donations are welcome and greatly appreciated.
