Sakhisizwe - Nonceba Family Counselling Centre

In today’s show, we were broadcasting live from Nonceba Family Counselling Centre in Khayelitsha as part of the16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign. The Centre was founded in 1998 to respond to the problems of sexual abuse in Khayelitsha, particularly the sexual abuse of children, which had risen to epidemic proportions due to the serious social problems affecting the township and a lack of capacity to cope from an overburdened police force.

We spoke to Pauline Perez - General Manager at the Centre.   
Nozuko Conjwa – Social Worker at the Centre joined us to talk more about their Victim Support Services.


Kim (not her real name) *Face blurred-out to protect her identity
