#BeTheLight in the fight against Gender Based Violence

The time for us to act is now. Your light is contagious, pass it on. We challenge you to join in showing support, by wearing all black and posting a photo or video of you taking the pledge to #BeTheLight, on social media. Break the silence and start making changes. Any man who hurts women or abuses children doesn't deserve to call himself a man. Be the man our country needs and #BeTheLight for a brighter tomorrow.
