Charity: Matla a Bana
Christelle is a project development and marketing officer at the Callie and Monique Trust, as part of the Vodacom Change the World programme.
The focus area of the organisation which is based in the Western Cape and Gauteng is gender based violence.
Weyers has always been involved in volunteer work through various initiatives, which included a safe house for abused girls. According to her child abuse is also very close to home in her life.
Through her volunteer work the NPO will be adding prevention components to their intervention. One of the campaigns that they will be running is called “Getting conversation going”, which will be done in conjunction with the police. They are also looking at a “Be a Hero” school project.
The aim is then to raise awareness in schools in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Gauteng in partnership with the police.
