SASCOC backs the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence campaign

Message from SASCOC President, Gideon Sam. “As the sports movement we strive to side and participate with movements that concern themselves with respecting the rights of all our communities. Sport as a unifier of people must concientise all participants in our structures that women and children have legitimate rights in our country. We do not do this because it’s fashionable but out of a deep conviction that sports leaders have a role to play as they work with the impressionable minds of the children in sport. We have issued a comprehensive document that seeks to spell out clearly how National Federations, who are members of Sascoc, should deal with the issues of abuse of women and girl children in our society. We believe that during this special time of paying attention to these issues of abuse, sport must stand up and show that we care. It is the right thing to do to support the efforts of all organizations who are deeply concerned with the matter of women abuse in our communities. We call on all our leaders in sport to be extra vigilant during this time to protect and treat our women who work side by side with men in sport, with respect and dignity.
