Every persone want to feel save in her/his own home, community, town and country. Unfortunately the reality is that South-African women, children and vulnerable persons do not have this basic right. They are victimized through domestic violence, rape, molestation, murder, intimidation and physical abuse.


The 16 Days of Activism against Violence against Women and Children is an international campaign that was initiated at the fist Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991. In 1999 South-Africa decided to participate in this campaign from the 25th of November to the 10th of December each year.


The goal of the campaign is 16 days without violence. During this periode the focus is on the negative impact that violence have on women, children and the community.

The ACVV Stop the Pain campaign will run from the 25th of November to the 10th  December 2009. During this campaign the ACVV and the community is going to make a stand against violence. A strong message that violence is not acceptable will be send out. Programs wil be presented in 114 different towns in the Northern-, Eastern- and Wester Cape. The Nasionale days wil be in Upington (25 November), Port Elizabeth (4 December) and Cape Town (5 December).

Men are mainly responsible for the violence against women and children, but there are a big percentage of men that is against violence. The ACVV invites these men to support the Stop the Pain campaign through pledging.



I, agree by sending this pledge to help stop the abuse of women & children by saying: NO, NEVER will I be found in the circles of those who commit abuse, sexual harassment and intimidation against women and children. I say NO to domestic violence, rape, murder, abuse, child pornography and the trafficking of children. I say YES to STOP THE PAIN!! I fully support the 16 Days of Activism for NO Violence against women and children. My participation is my pledge.
