About GBVF

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

“After the Presidential Summit on GBVF in November of 2018, and after extensive consultations that were held, these consultations resulted in the drafting and adoption of a National Strategic Plan. The implementation of the plan commenced on 1st of May 2020. The plan recognises that the struggle against GBV and Femicide requires collective as well as a strategic type of leadership.”

- His Excellency President Cyril Ramaphosa
