The National Children and Violence Trust (NCVT) invites you to join us as we celebrate Human Rights Day with the community of Diepsloot on Wednesday, 16 March 2016. Proceedings will take place at St Mungos Church from 10:00 – 14:00.

NCVT is a non-profit organisation that works within the community of Diepsloot and its surrounding areas. The organisation supports vulnerable groups such as abused and violated women and children; the unemployed and people infected by human immunodeficiency virus infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS). On 16 March 2016, NCVT will be celebrating women’s and children’s rights in commemoration of the upcoming national holiday on 21 March 2016 – Human Rights Day.

The programme will include discussions about what human rights are and how they can be infringed. The campaign aims to encourage a violence free and healthy society and discuss / give advice as to how to eradicate oppression. Lunch and soft drinks will be served at the end of the day.

“Our main aim for the day is to educate people on what their basic human rights are,” shares Judith Mthombeni, Senior Social Worker at NCVT. “Our social workers will be actively involved in assisting community members and resolving reported cases throughout the day,” concludes Mthombeni.
