Wednesday - Gender - Thusanang Community Project

On today's show i spoke to Raymond Bokako founder of Thusanang community project that's based in Gugulethu. We needed to find out more about this amazing project that's making a difference in the community of Gugulethu as well as the surroundings - Raymond started by giving us the background of Thusanang. 

Thusanang Community Care project bases at Masizakhe centre in Gugulethu. The centre deals with, among other things, family preservation for families and couples who are in conflict and mend those relationships by doing counselling, gender reconciliation, fighting domestic violence, referring residents who want to apply for grants to relevant departments, HIV/Aids programmes where they are targeting infected and affected residents, and they also do house visits where they do community care assessments for social problems encountered by the community.

Thusanang also has support groups for men , where they promote gender equality and encourage men for stand against violence in women and girls. Unfortunately they lack resources at the centre and they would like your contribution to better  it and make it comfortable and accommodating for other people that would like to visit. For more information please call Raymond on 079 149 8462.
