#GamersAgainstGBV 2021

Personal message

Gender-based violence (GBV) is a broad term for violence inflicted on a person because of gender associations, including that of unequal power relations. Victims are predominantly women and children, but men and members of the LGBTQ plus community also make up the horrifying statistics. While this is a tragic international issue, it is also one that is very close to home. This violence needs to be brought to an end.

Our people need to be protected. This Women’s Month, Mettlestate (a gaming tournament organiser) and various gaming streamers are running a donation campaign called #GamersAgainstGBV.

We are raising money for People Opposing Women Abuse (POWA). POWA provides refuge and aid to victims of GBV, as well as raising awareness and fighting for legal reform.

From 1-8 August, there will be different streams for you to watch and donate what you can to help this organisation. On 9 August (Women’s Day) all streamers will be doing a marathon stream from 9 am to 5 pm in hopes to raise as much money and awareness as possible. See the schedule on our site to catch your favourite streamers and help us with this cause. Remember, no donation is too small.

This campaign will help raise money for POWA, which will allow them to continue their fight against GBV in various ways, including front-line services, research, and legal advocacy. This campaign will also give them the necessary exposure they need.

All donations will be made directly to POWA's account. This money will be used to continue their fight against GBV in South Africa.

People Opposing Women Abuse

People Opposing Women Abuse Logo

People Opposing Women Abuse (POWA) is an organisation started 40 years ago by 6 women who volunteered to provide referral services and shelter to women who had experienced domestic violence. 

Today, we are an organisation that continues to provide shelter for abused women and other frontline services such as counselling.  We have also expanded our services to include legal and advocacy support.  More importantly, we are an organisation that has transformed its ideology that frames us as a women’s rights organisation engaging in policy reform and developmental addressing socio-economic and socio-political issues that affect women’s livelihoods. 

As an organisation, our aim is to ‘open spaces for us as women in all our diversity to enjoy our fundamental human rights.’

We currently have 7 physical working sites in Gauteng that provide counselling, sheltering and legal support to women at the face-to-face level.   We also have national reach and presence through our telephonic counselling, advocacy, public awareness and sector strengthening work.  

Over the years we have become an organisation that is considered to be an expert on issues of women’s rights we are consulted by the private sector, government and civil society on educational and decision-making matters pertaining to women’s safety and enjoyment of their rights.
