Address Gender Based Violence (GBV).

At Concern, we believe unequivocally that protecting and empowering women and girls is key to making lasting change. Gender-based violence has many causes but we’ve identified key factor as harmful gander norms — and outlined ways we’re working to address them.

HARMFUL GENDER NORMS

Gender stereotypes and are often used to justify violence against women. Cultural norms often dictate that men are aggressive, controlling, and dominant, while women are docile, subservient, and rely on men as providers. These norms can foster a culture of abuse outright, such as early and forced marriage or female genital mutilation, the latter spurred by outdated and harmful notions of female sexuality and virginity south African main problem is once married most men take it as a wife as property which belongs to them which is not true all human must be with equal rights to live.

In South Africa, gender-based violence is a vastly widespread issue, that presents a real, daily threat for millions of people. The As Yeisa organization for gender equality calls for an end to all violence against, and exploitation of, women and girls. As South Africa gender based violence is the leading crimes, now is the perfect time to take another look at what it has become as a country, and how all South Africans can take action to make sure gender-based violence isn’t the “new normal.” Join the movement by taking action here to help protect and empower South Africa’s women and girls including children. 

Culture Cross Pollination

Crosspollination of cultures.  is what really happens through the generations. We create new cultural identities. This is integration – the bringing of parts into a whole. The whole – society – keeps changing because it keeps bringing in new parts, An Exchange For Cultural Cross Pollination is an adventure in sharing not only through the internet but through a presence in real time visual spaces, experiences of people all over the world through the production of their art.

Why cross pollination works.
Just as in the plant world, where new life arises from the introduction of pollen from other plants, all great ideas arise from combinations of ideas that haven’t met yet. In both cases, we call this process cross pollination. You get a greater diversity of ideas by collaborating with a greater diversity of creative people—people from a variety of disciplines, departments, cultures, ages, mindsets, motivations, and orientations.

HIV/AID’s Peer Education

Why should Yeisa organisation address the issue of HIV and AIDS

HIV and AIDS is one of the biggest challenges we face as a country. The rate of infection is rapidly increasing and more and more people are getting ill and dying from AIDS. Of all the people living with AIDS in the world, it is estimated that 6 out of every 10 men, 8 out of every 10 women and 9 out of every 10 children live in Sub-Saharan Africa. South Africa has one of the fastest growing rates of infection in the world.

Home Based Programs And Psychological Care Of People Living With HIV/ AIDS.(PLWHA)

Individuals, families and communities are badly affected by the epidemic. The burden of care falls on the families and children of those who are ill. Often they have already lost a breadwinner and the meagre resources they have left are not enough to provide care for the ill person and food for the family.

Children who are orphaned are often deprived not only of parental care, but also of financial support. Many of them leave school and have no hope of ever getting a decent education or job. These children who grow up without any support or guidance from adults may become our biggest problem in the future.

Most of the people who are dying are between the ages of 20 and 45 – an age when most people are workers and parents. This has serious consequences for south African economy and the development of the country.

AIDS can affect anyone. But it is clear that it is spreading faster to people who live in poverty and lack access to education, basic health services, nutrition and clean water. Young people and women are the most vulnerable. Women are often powerless to insist on safe sex and easily become infected by HIV positive partners. When people have other diseases like sexually transmitted diseases, TB or malaria they are also more likely to contract and die from AIDS.

Although AIDS has become very common it is still surrounded by silence. People are ashamed to speak about being infected and many see it as a scandal when it happens in their families. People living with AIDS are exposed to daily prejudice born out of ignorance and fear.

We cannot tackle this epidemic unless we can break the silence and remove the stigma [shame] that surrounds it. As leaders in our communities we have to provide leadership on how to deal with HIV/AIDS.

The fight against HIV/ AIDS has to happen on two main fronts – prevention and care. To prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS we have to educate people on how to prevent infection. We also have to change the social attitudes that make women vulnerable because they cannot refuse unsafe sex from a partner and the attitudes among men that lead to woman abuse and rape. Poverty alleviation and development are also important programs that will limit the spread of HIV/ AIDS.

To deal with the results of the disease and the social problems it creates, we have to make sure that people living with AIDS get care and support to help them live longer and healthier lives. We also have to make sure that those who are dying are properly looked after. For the children who are left orphaned we have to find ways of looking after them so that they do not become hopeless and turn to crime or live on the streets because of poverty.

HIV/AIDS can reverse the gains the government have made in struggle to build a better life for our people. Government cannot fight this battle alone. Government can provide health and welfare services, development programmes and information. as Yeisa Organisations on the ground have to provide the type of leadership and direction that will lead to real change in people’s attitudes and behaviour Against HIV AIDS.

It is also the responsibility of every individual to support the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Neurodiversity Among The Youth

Neurodiversity is a concept where neurological differences are to be recognized and respected as any other human variation. These differences can include those “labelled” with Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyscalculia, Autistic Spectrum, Tourette Syndrome, and others. Neurodivestiy is a movement that is growing particularly in relation to those within the autism community. In relation to developing services to meet the needs of neurodiverse young people we must consider the question, ‘who should be the author’? If services are to meet the needs of the neurodiverse mind then there must be an emphasis in co-authorship. A context of two worlds, that of the neurotypical and that of the neurodiverse mind, colliding, then shaping and growing a service is striking interest and enthusiasm, not only in the field of education but also in the field of business and the development of young entrepreneurs. Unfortunately in mainstream education, social abuse is widespread and inherent in many schools and the notion of social control, academic gain and cultural conformity leaves those standing outside of the box in an institutional no man’s land. In bringing both worlds together we have an opportunity to empower those who are wired differently with those who currently set the rules. It will be with this collision that policy and practices can be shaped to ensure that both worlds are respected and understood and the same rights and privileges are offered to all young people within our society.
