Greetings to our cherished community members and supporters! The Breede Valley Association for People with Disabilities (BVAPD) recently held an extraordinary Women’s Day function that marked a significant step toward a safer and more equitable South Africa.
Our Special Guest: Tanelle Welff-Dixon
“Not In My Town” National Campaign Against Gender-Based Violence and Femicide (GBVF), Fraud, Corruption, and Gang Violence in South Africa.
The “Not In My Town” Campaign
This campaign, championed by Rev. Tanelle Welff-Dixon, aims to unite all provinces in a collective stand against GBVF, fraud, corruption, and gang violence. It seeks to engage communities, foster collaborations, and secure political commitment for a safer future for all citizens.
Mayor Steyn’s Pledge
Mayor Antoinette Steyn was unable to attend the function, but signed the pledge at her office, committing to actively combat these societal ills in our community. This pledge symbolizes a shared determination to create a safer environment and economic opportunities for all.
Why This Matters
The Women’s Day function served as a platform to raise awareness and foster community engagement. It was a momentous occasion that will form part of a Legacy Project, aimed at uniting South Africans behind a common cause.
At BVAPD, we are committed to empowering individuals to take a stand against these issues. We believe that through collective action, we can instigate lasting change and create safer communities for all citizens.
