Gender Based Violence Programme

In collaboration with the Department of Education, Mpilonhle has Learner Support Agents placed in 50 schools. The Agents - typically young graduates from the respective schools - are trained to identify possible cases of Sexual Abuse and Gender Based Violence . These cases are referred to the Mpilonhle GBV team which comprises of social workers, psychologists and social auxiliary workers for further evaluation. Learners receive psychosocial counseling and support when needed and are referred for further care to collaborating entities which include SAPS, DSD, Lifeline, and Thuthuzela Care Centres.
