Skin Sipoko – Practitioners

My motivation to join SaferSpaces:

South Africa is developing from the ruins of Apartheid and racial segregation, which has resulted in black people living in abject poverty, overcrowding and unemployment. This situation has resulted in high levels of crime and violence,  including abuse against women and children. It is this, which has motivated me to engage my energy, skills and time to work with children and youth.

Community, Education
