Local women community workers are now even better equipped to help deal with domestic violence.

Last month, 20 women participated in a workshop, which included an overview of the City of Cape Town’s social development and early childhood development directorate’s processes.

The women are all active and dedicated community workers in the health, victim support, domestic violence, youth and poverty alleviation sectors in Mitchell’s Plain.

Topics discussed during the workshop were understanding gender, the cycle of violence, anger management, assertiveness, working with men, communication skills and stress management.

“These community workers are now better equipped to deal with disputes in the community. They are in a position where they are able to support the entire community on issues that have a negative impact on them, through sharing their current knowledge of the skills they have learnt,” says ward 76 councillor Goawa Timm.

“They are also the ambassadors for the 16 Days of Activism campaign.”
