Power2You Packs

Personal message

We are committed to serving and listening alongside those who have been doing incredible work addressing gender-based violence (GBV) in South Africa. We listened to women’s rights practitioners involved in gender-based violence work to see what we could do practically to support women. The most common response from survivors of gender-based violence was, “I wish I was able to at least protect myself at that time.”

With the help of trusted NPOs and community organisations, we were able to source and compile our Power2You Packs to give to women in a bid to put power into their hands.

The Power2You Packs consists of pepper spray, whistles, an emergency number wallet-size card, and a journal with resourceful information about seeking justice, legal help, and healing.

Ever since this resource tool was developed in August 2020:

  1. We resourced 20 NPO’s on the ground with these packs.
  2. Distributed 9000 Power2You Packs.
  3. Reached 4 provinces.

You can help us reach more women by sponsoring a Power2You Pack to an NPO for only R55.

Kolisi Foundation

Kolisi Foundation Logo

The Kolisi Foundation was founded by Siya and Rachel Kolisi with a vision to change narratives of inequality in South Africa. By working alongside others, adding our story to the stories of communities and individuals who are changing the world. By “remembering the one, one by one” we will impact the nation.

What we do?

The Kolisi Foundation seeks to support people living in under-resourced communities in South Africa, by providing relief resources, facilitating capacity-building and horizontal learning exchanges, and mobilizing and advocating for systemic change.

The Kolisi Foundation's mission is shaped around the following three programmatic areas: Food Security, Gender-Based Violence, and Education and Sports Development.
