Four organizations with a footprint in the fight against GBV are the beneficiaries of the proceeds, an amount of N$841 320, made from the suncessful MTC Knockout Project held on 12 October 2019.

At a press conference, MTC announced Monica Gender Violence, Solution, Ecumenical Social Diaconate Action (ESDA), Namibia Rural Women’s Assembly (NRWA), and Ombetja Yehinga Organisation (OYO) as the beneficiaries, who will each receive N$220 000, with the exception of Monica Gender Violence Solutions getting N$ N$181 320.

As narrated from the onset, the MTC Knockout Project was aimed at creating awareness around GBV and steering a dialogue, and raising funds to better fund and equip experts in the field to better fight GBV. Congratulations to the four organisations and let the work begin.

When asked for a comment, the OYO director Phillipe Telavera says the money will be very handy in the project they will be carrying out.
