Mbokodo and Ntsika: Heroes for Change

Personal message

The Justice Desk is equipping the next generation of changemakers, and we need your help!

 

Who we are:

The Justice Desk is a Human Rights non-profit organisation based in South Africa (SA), operating in SA, Zambia and Zimbabwe. We were established in 2013, with the primary goal of "Promoting the Power of Everyday Activists".

​To do this, we empower ordinary people to understand and defend their Human Rights to transform society and create a more just and equal world! 

We also work alongside civil society, NGOs, businesses, and governments across the globe to challenge and eliminate the root causes of injustice.

 

By donating to this crowdfunding campaign, you will be supporting two of our flag-ship projects, aimed at eradicating Gender-Based Violence.

 

Ntsika:

The Ntsika yeThemba project aims to end Gender-Based Violence by equipping a generation of positive male role models who challenge toxic masculinity and GBV and promote equal rights and justice for all!

Through various positive role model encounters and mentorship initiatives and the use of outdoor adventure-based education, young boys from township communities, many without fathers or father figures, are being empowered to become incredible leaders and agents of change. 

They are reshaping, redefining and re-building positive ideas and actions of masculinity. They are being taught how to respect one another, respect women, understand consent and be a part of building a free and equal country for all! 

Ntsika yeThemba: "Pillars of Hope, Defenders of Women & Leaders for an Equal Society"!

Your donation will make it possible for these young boys to access:

  • Empowerment Workshops: Our young boys are equipped through various lessons and skills development sessions, such as training on gender-based violence, human rights education, consent, and gender norms.
  • Mental Health Support: The boys are supported through mental health resilience development and workshops, such as guided meditation, yoga, journaling, and reflection. They also attend regular trauma counselling.
  • Outdoor Education: Exciting and innovative activities such as obstacle courses, team building, hiking, camping, and nature exploration are used to build an environment of teamwork, brotherhood, and learning.

 

 

Mbokodo:

The Justice Desk's Mbokodo Club Project focuses on offering empowerment workshops, mental healthcare, and self-defense programs to girl survivors of gender-based violence and rape. 

The young girls we work with are between 9 and 19 and come from vulnerable communities such as Nyanga, Khayelitsha, Gugulethu, Langa and Bonteheuwel.

The project focuses on equipping young girls to lead their change, become community leaders and join a network of women supporting women within underserved communities and townships.

Our young girls can achieve this because of the quality services and education at the Mbokodo Club.

Your donation will make it possible for these young girls to access:

  • Empowerment workshops: Our heroes are empowered through various lessons and skills development sessions, such as training on gender-based violence, human rights education, sexual health, leadership development, public speaking, body image, and self-confidence.
  • Mental health support: Our young girls through mental health resilience development and workshops (such as guided meditation, yoga, journaling, and reflection). The girls also attend regular trauma counselling.
  • Fitness and self-defence: Specialised fitness sessions are run with our young girls, including boxing sessions and self-defence classes, which build their overall confidence and fitness levels.
