Sonke launch postcard series as part of campaign to get government to commit to GBV NSP

The GBV NSP Campaign Partners (a coalition of more than 50 South African cilvil society organisations, including Sonke), have been calling on government to fund and implement a comprehensive National Strategic Plan (NSP) to end gender-based violence (GBV), which must be multisectoral and include widespread prevention strategies.

As part of our campaign to get government to commit to the GBV NSP, we launched a series of postcards, each with the story and photograph of a person/persons who have been affected by GBV.

On the back of the postcards, South Africans can write to government about why they think we must invest in a national plan to end gender-based violence.

The first batch of postcards were handed over to the Ministry of Women as part of the national #16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence campaign in December.

These are some of the portraits of the people featured in the postcards campaign.
