On the 25th of November 2013, faith communities responded to the leadership of the Archbishop of Capetown, Thabo Makgoba when he committed the Anglican Communion to breaking the silence around SGBV. At an event, which was held at St. Albans Anglican Cathedral in Pretoria, the Archbishop launched the Tearfund research report, ‘Breaking the Silence’ and the coalition, ‘We will speak out South Africa.’ (www.wewillspeakout.org)

The launch event was followed by a call to action and a strategic planning meeting of Church leaders and Christian NGO’s to work on a 12-month action plan.
