Walk to kindle spirit of brotherhood

2010-11-24 00:00

EMPLOYEES of the Ugu District Municipality (UDM) will on Friday stage a “Be That Man” walk to raise awareness about abuse of women, children and disabled persons.

The walk will mark the 16 days of activism for no violence against women and children, held from tomorrow, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and Children, until December 10, which is International Human Rights Day. The 16 days include Universal Children’s Day and World Aids Day

The UDM special programmes manager said, “The campaign seeks to draw upon the spirit of brotherhood that exists among the African men and to encourage them to positively influence each other as men, partners, parents and as leaders.”

The “Be That Man” walk will start at the Port Shepstone Civic Centre at noon and move to the Ugu main building in Oslo Beach.

There the walkers will hand a pledge of support for women and children to the district’s women political leadership, women traditional leaders and senior women officials of government departments.
