The Office of the President has sent High Commissioners and Ambassadors an invitation to participate in a virtual fund raiser on South Africa’s National Strategic Plan to implement programs to address Gender Based Violence and the prevention of femicide.
As you will see from the letter addressed to our High Commissioner, the Presidency is seeking private sector financial support to constructively address this priority.
You may make a pledge now or make a commitment to contribute later.
Should you be interested in supporting this initiative please do let me know and I will immediately pass on your information to Ms Jenny Cooper, Head of Canada’s Development program at the High Commission of Canada in Pretoria. Jenny will be in touch with you to coordinate a company invitation from the Office of the President to participate in the event on 4th February 2021 at 4pm until 6pm.
You are welcome to share this message with your colleagues and business networks.
This is an opportunity for business and the public sector to unite to address the scourge of GBV in South Africa.
Please feel free to reach out to me should you have any questions.
