To mark the 27th anniversary of the passing of Joe Slovo the Joe Slovo Foundation the Empire Partner Foundation, Afri-tec Technologies and The South African Local Government Association (SALGA) are collaborating in gathering and obtaining more accurate data on gender-based-violence and abuse at local government level.
The three will collect continuous anonymised data at the grassroots level (victim, bystander, clinic, school, university, and hospital), combining it with ‘heat-mapping’ as per the globally successful ‘Cardiff Violence Prevention Model’ – developed by Cardiff University.
This data will be instrumental in creating a GBV Database, which will on monthly basis provide SALGA and national government with data to understand in detail the deadly scourge of GBV. Data collected will be key in assisting authorities to determine preventative measures at local government level against GBV, monitor and evaluate interventions.
