In May, 2012, the Centre is facing imminent closure due to a lack of funding. Like other NGOs, the Centre has been resourced through a network of government support, international donors, and local individual and corporate donors. And like other NGOs, in the current climate of economic challenge and in-province political complexities, the Centre’s fundraising efforts have become more and more difficult. But the Saartjie Baartman Centre belongs to Cape Town, and general explanations for its struggles are not good enough. After 13 years of service to thousands of abused women and children, the Centre’s May birthday celebrations hang in the balance as more than 18 women and children get turned away from the emergency shelter. The Centre has already been forced to close their Worcester shelter, Eerste Begin, because the Cape Winelands Municipality withdrew their support from the project.

What can YOU DO?
