2nd Chance, a public benefit organisation (PBO), launched its Rise Up campaign this month in response to the upsurge in gender-based violence in South Africa.
The purpose of the campaign is to empower young men with practical tools that will help them respect women, protect children and add value to society.
The organisation will be working in 15 schools in the Western Cape and 15 schools in the Eastern Cape over the next three months. They will focus on a number of topics, including the trauma pupils may have experienced, decision making, healthy mindsets and substance abuse.
This week, 2nd Chance visited Norman Henshilwood High School in Constantia.
