Women For Change might be forced to cease operations due to insufficient funding

Women for Change (WFC) is a non-profit organisation that brings attention to the crisis of Gender-Based Violence and Femicide (GBVF) in South Africa, utilising the power of social media to drive positive change. With more than 350,000 followers across our social media platforms, we reach up to 15 million people per month and influence policymakers and public opinion. We have created a nationwide community, assisting up to 150 survivors and/or their families daily.

GBVF remains a pressing issue in our country, and for years, WFC has been at the forefront of advocating and raising awareness to end this deep-rooted issue. The organisation has experienced massive growth in the past 18 months but has not received any funding and relies purely on small donations and voluntary work.

Without the allocation of funding or financial contributions, WFC will be forced to cease operations in the upcoming weeks, which would have devastating consequences for survivors, their families and the community we serve.

We implore funders, private businesses, and individuals to provide the necessary resources to sustain our organisation and enable us to provide essential support to women and children in need.

Message from the Founder:

My dear community, for more than four years, I have been working on WFC, mainly on my own.

I am immensely proud of the impact WFC has made in the lives of thousands of women and children. However, despite my unwavering commitment, passion and dedication, sustaining the daily operations has become increasingly challenging due to the immense workload and lack of financial support.

Without funding and the support of a full-time team, WFC can no longer sustain itself, and I will be forced to cease operations.

My heart is really sore after making this announcement. I am very aware of the devastating consequences that it will have on many lives in South Africa, but I hope that together, we can find the right resources to continue this so important work.

Remember, we are the women we have been waiting for!

To all my wonderful humans who have supported this movement, thank you from the bottom of my heart, Sabrina
