Young people taking a stand against abuse.

The School of Social Sciences in the College of Humanities hosted a seminar on Gender Based Violence (GBV).

Speakers included Chairperson of the KZN Crime Prevention Desk, Mr Lungelo Zulu; SRC president, Ms Kuhlekonke Ntuli; HR development Manager at UKZN, Mrs Busisiwe Ramabodu, and PhD Candidate in Criminology and Forensics, Mr Mandisa Makhaye.

After the panel had spoken, members of the audience were invited to ask questions.

Organisers found it relevant to create a platform where divergent views on GBV could be expressed and given the necessary attention.

One of the primary aims of this programme was to provide holistic education on GBV against women, men and homosexuals.

The goal of the awareness programme is to empower women and men and to strengthen the “University society’s” values, especially to those who are victims of gender based violence and to build good relationships between men and women within the University society.

The seminar will be an annual event from now on taking place on the various campuses.
