Gender-Based Violence Monitor South Africa (GBV Monitor SA) is a non-profit organisation advocating for a gender-based violence free South Africa founded by Omogolo Taunyane-Mnguni.
We seek to challenge institutional inertia on GBV cases and patriarchal dogma, in order to inculcate positive behavioural change across all institutions and eradicate GBV. GBV is a national crisis in need of urgent, meaningful and sustainable responses cutting across broad sectors of society.
GBV is a national crisis in need of urgent, meaningful and sustainable responses cutting across broad sectors of society. The organisation’s activities are aimed at:
- Improving government’s capacity to provide regular reports on GBV.
- Supporting policymakers to identify and respond more effectively to institutional gaps in responses to violence against vulnerable persons.
- Enhancing engagement between government, media and society to jointly design and implement solutions to ending GBV.
The organisation’s activities support global efforts to promote impactful change espoused in the 2030 Agenda for Development, particularly Sustainable Development Goal 5 (achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls) and Sustainable Development Goal 16 (promote peaceful and sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels).
Through collaborated partnerships with under-represented communities, non-profit organisations, the media, government institutions, and the business community, GBV Monitor SA will have a multiplier impact on the lives of those who have been affected by gender-based violence.
