Our names are Siyabonga Khusela & Luyolo Lengisi and we are the co-founders of #Langaformen
We are looking to expand #langaformen, which started as a peaceful protest against gender-based violence in South Africa, into an NPO that seeks to educate young boys to become better men. Most organisations focus on the victims (predominantly women) and not on the perpetrators (mainly men) and so we decided it was our responsibility to turn the perpetrators into protect 'hers'.
This campaign will allow us to expand our work and ensure the next generation of young men in South Africa treat women and one another with respect, by ensuring they themselves have a safe space to heal and learn how to be better men.
The funds will be used for our foundational phase which is setting up #Langaformen as an NPO:
- Rent office space
- Salaries for our core team
- Buy electronics that we need including a laptop, printer, cell phone, camera & projector
- Wifi & stationery
- Marketing materials including merchandise & banners for protests
- Transport costs
