2020 - 16 Days of Activism

Main Article Pic
Through her NPC Yellow For Survivors, 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, men and children by offering free anti-rape technique classes.

According to Leilani, learning to protect yourself can give you new-found confidence and assertiveness.

On 17 November 2020 Leilani reached a huge milestone when during a anti-rape technique session, she allowed Gary Lewis who specialises in anti-rape techniques and self-defence classes to touch (strangle) her throat.

During the 16 days of activism against GBV, the free sessions were sponsored by Yellow For Survivors and made possible by SPAR. We have so far helped 290 people with self-defence sessions during 16 Days of Activism in 2020. Our NPC may be new, and our cause may be a difficult one to think about, but we are out here changing lives and making a real, tangible difference.
