Woman2Woman South Africa Pandemic Relief

Hi, my name is Halli Berrebbi and I am fundraising on behalf of an incredible community-based organization in Cape Town, South Africa known as Woman2Woman. In 2019, I got the amazing opportunity to be one of their first interns and to travel there to help them achieve a mission that is very important to me. Since 2014, Woman2Woman has been working to #BreakTheSilence on domestic violence towards women and children in Bishop Lavis, Cape Town. Every day, children as young as 10 are lured into the world of gangs and drugs, and women and children face the physical and mental threat that comes with an area of severe gang violence. Woman2Woman, led by Florence Campbell, creates a safe space for women and children to tell their stories and to heal through community events, workshops, and programs with members of the community, as well as with their schools and local police. One of their most successful programs has been their "Generation Shakers" program, which is an after-school program that works with kids K-12 to educate them on the dangers that surround them growing up. This program and the work they do with these children encourages them to stay in school and to stay away from drugs and gang members, which for some of these children are direct members of their families.

 

When COVID-19 hit, Woman2Woman and the amazing work they do was put on a detrimental pause. Already tight funds were no longer able to come in and programs were temporarily stopped. We have all seen the effects of isolation and quarantine causing an increase in crime and domestic violence in the US, and in Bishop Lavis, the rise in crime and domestic violence has been severe. Woman2Woman needs your help to continue their highly successful mission to make their home a safer place for all. 100% of the money raised on GoFundMe will be put towards their programming and development so that they can continue the amazing work that they do. Please, help these women to continue to #BreakTheSilence and to Inspire, Motivate, and Empower Women to be the change they want to see in the world.
