Social Impact Programmes
Gender Based Violence Programmes
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.
Memorial lecture against the killing of young women
On 12 May 2018, MADA, hosted a Memorial Lecture Against killing of young women. This was composed with the aim to commemorate the life of the late Karabo Mokoena and other young women killed in Soweto between April and May 2017. The organisation has gained a significant amount of media coverage around this subject and a weighty support from government and community members.
I-Pledge programme against gender-based violence
An initiative that has raised interest in local communities, corporate companies and government entities. Endorsed by minister of social development we have rallied prominent public figures to participate in delivering speeches regarding gender-based violence.
