Stop The Bus Day 2


Arriving at the Centre

It is day two and the team is in high spirit after a good night’s rest. Today the team is making their way to The Saartjie Baartman Centre in Brandwacht.

The contact person for this centre requested a talk for the ladies at the centre. A few ladies of an informal settlement ; Ivan Park in Worcester also attended.

The topic was Understanding Rape and why we need to support rape survivors.

The facilitators Jemima, Nontuthuzelo and Shaamiela gave a two and a half hour talk in Afrikaans and Xhosa. The ladies participated and also told their own stories. After the talk they said that they were  thankful and will support and assist other women  who also go through abuse.

The next stop was Valley Fm a community Radio station in Worcester. Evelynne was interviewed by the programme manager  Chathrine Wiese.



Evelynne encouraged the listeners to break the silence and to speak out against abuse. She explained the different type of rape, myths and the support for the survivor through the criminal justice system.

The team had debriefing and packed the resources for the next day.

We have a vision of a South Africa in which rape survivors suffer no secondary trauma, and are supported throughout their interaction with the Criminal Justice System (CJS). Our mission is to promote an end to violence against women, specifically rape, and to assist women to achieve their right to live free from violence. Rape Crisis Cape Town seeks to achieve its mission through counselling and training of women, thereby reducing the trauma experienced by rape survivors, and encouraging reporting of rape and the conviction of rapists.
