Stop the Bus! – Day 6 (Trip 2) – Time to say goodbye

Stanford - the final day of the workshop

Stanford - the last day of the workshop

This morning we headed to Stanford where we continued with the workshop. The topic today was care for the caregiver.  We also had a networking meeting in Hermanus where the needs, problems and resources within the Hermanus, Gansbaai, Pearly Beach and Stanford communities were identified and to build better capacity and finding ways of broadening the network of support for rape survivors. Moreover, we visited the hospital, the police station and the Regional Court in Hermanus in connection with the Shukumisa campaign to see whether the rape survivors’ rights and services within the system are followed.

The team has found this journey very rewarding and interesting and we all agreed that the needs for the support of rape survivors in the area visited were vast. We will close this enlightening journey with a quote from Soren Kierkegaard: “To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself”.

  1. Well done, Team 2! Thank you so very much to you all for an amazing job. You have had a huge impact on so many lives, including your own. It’s been a priviledge and a pleasure for me to watch your journey on the blog. Rest well now that you are home and spoil yourselves rotten…..you deserve it!!

  2. It seems to have been a great learning journey for all the crew. You went as a Unified team, with a specific Purpose. I suspect many women will experience Healing as a result of the knowledge they have gained and you as crew have no doubt Grown as a result of what you have learnt from the women you’ve been interacting with. Well done!
