Summary

South Africa is The Rape Capital of the World - say Interpol - where 1/3rd of all females have been or will be Raped. The Joe Slovo Foundation got fed up with people talking lots BUT doing little, so we are rolling a Mobile Rape Rescue Alarm Service for girls & women to press when they feel in danger that instantly sends multiple alarm messages to local community, family and friends with their location so they can respond urgently; prevent the rape& catch the rapist.

Challenge

Over 3000 girls and women are raped in South Africa every 24 hours. The Economist says rape has reached epidemic proportions and that 1/3rd of all girls and women are raped AT least once in their life and that 38% of men admit to having used force or threats to obtain sex. UN indicates a women or girl (often children) is raped every 26 seconds - see links to reports and videos BUT THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THAT SO LITTLE IS BEING DONE TO HELP PROTECT THE GIRLS AND WOMEN FROM RAPE

Solution

This Rape Rescue Alarm Service is only 93% perfect so it will not solve the problem, besides the problem is epidemic but will significantly Prevent ,Halt and Reduce the number of rapes whilst dramatically increasing the number of rapists being caught and successfully prosecuted. Women and Girls live in a climate of fear in South Africa and this project will give them some hope !

Long-Term Impact

We are giving the service free throughout the country and via sponsors will make this self -sustainable for 20 million females. Changing the Rape Culture through Education is the best long term solution, but this will significantly improve the capture, prosecution and imprisonment of offenders as currently only 1 in 500 cases of sexual assault results in a conviction. - which will have a big impact. The Foundation is a SARS accredited PBO so Donors will receive a 28% Tax Deduction Certificate.
