Through her NPC Yellow For Survivors, rape activist Leilani Kuter strives to raise funds for organisations helping rape survivors and victims of gender-based violence (GBV).
Yellow For Survivors has gone a step further towards empowering women by offering free self-defence classes.
According to Leilani, learning to protect yourself can give you new-found confidence and assertiveness.
On 17 November Leilani reached a huge milestone when during a self-defence session, she allowed Gary Lewis who specialises in anti-rape techniques and women’s self-defence to touch (strangle) her throat.
Gary is also involved in teaching woman and children anti-human trafficking skills to prevent kidnapping.
During the 16 days of activism against GBV, the free sessions are sponsored by Yellow For Survivors and made possible by SPAR.
Members of the public attending the sessions are reminded to bring their own water and not wear jewellery.
