MORE than 100 KZN Girl Guides participated in a march against violence in the Pietermaritzburg CBD last Saturday. The march began in Church Street and proceeded around the city, ending at city hall where girls were advised on how to protect themselves from violence. The girls who participated attend Grange Primary, Esigodini Primary, Sbongamandla Primary, Mandlezizwe Secondary and Fezokuhle Primary.Although this event has been in motion for many years, it was a first for the KZN Inland Girl Guides.“This is an international programme in all Girl Guides. We were encouraged to do something in the community to fight against violence. “We decided to run this campaign because we want the girls to make a difference,” said Caryn Smith from KZN Inland Girl Guides.“We want the girls to have knowledge of how they can be affected by the violence and how they can prevent it,” she ad- ded.
