Gender based violence is a profound and persistent problem occurring in South Africa in every culture and social group. This is a subject that is very tender to the Chairman of MADA, having suffered a painful loss of his own niece through gender-based violence. The organisation is committed to changing the mindset of the perpetrators. The organisation commits to a solution-driven focus, on addressing the thoughts and beliefs that justify violent behaviour. The aim is to incorporate problem solving, communication skills, anger management techniques and impulse control in its programmes.
