Kwanele Kwanele

“KWANELE KWANELE” (Enough is Enough) is an initiative of McAuley House, established in 2013 in response to the escalating incidence of violence and abuse against women and children both nationally and globally. The “KWANELE KWANELE” campaign aims to educate our students, parents, teachers, and communities about the profound extent and impact of such abuse in our society.

Through “KWANELE KWANELE” we are saying:

  • as a society – “enough is enough; we will not tolerate abuse any longer!”
  • as victims – “enough is enough; we will no longer be silent!”
  • as relatives, neighbours, mothers, and fathers – “we will not sit by and idly watch!”


With a greater awareness of this issue in our society, and a stronger, united voice against abuse, we believe that change is possible and that as a country we can achieve:
  • more stringent penalties for those who abuse.
  • a more sympathetic justice system, where victims are always treated with dignity.
  • proper implementation of the National Register for Sex Offenders (NRSO).
  • behaviour change of perpetrators/abusers.
  • greater support and access to information and options for victims/survivors.

Planned Activities

  • Co-ordinating “Silent” protests.
  • Inviting speakers to educate and create awareness for our learners and parents on what constitutes abuse and what behaviour is acceptable and what is not.
  • Creating awareness of and supporting charities that support victims of abuse.
  • Actively participating in Petitions.
  • Partnering with the media in getting the message across.
  • Volunteering time in support of a Shelter of abused women and children.
