Providing emotional support, practical advice and education around the problem of violence against women.

Ilitha Labantu saw its birth in the township of Gugulethu in Cape Town February 1989. At that time it was the only organization in any black township of Cape Town providing emotional support, practical advice and education around the problem of violence against women. The organization developed out of hands of Mandisa Monakali and dedicated community workers of a handful committed women from the township who were not able to find somewhere to go for their needs.
