TVEP offers an integrated range of prevention and support services to combat sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse and in north eastern South Africa
Limpopo is in the north east part of South Africa. Our services are primarily centred around the Vhembe district surrounding the large town of Thohoyandou.
Many more go unreported. Our trauma centres provide support to these victims while our empowerment sector facilitates classes and dialogues with the aim of reducing the incidents.
Our trauma counsellors are on hand to provide support and temporary shelter for these victims in their time of need.
Men and teenange girls in Vhembe have the highest rate of new infections, so we tailor our education and outreach programs to these populations
TVEP doesn’t just support victims and turn them into survivors. We believe that empowered communities are the next step in eliminating sexual and gender-based violence and HIV stigmatisation.
Over the years we’ve been honoured to partner with and receive funding from a variety of organisations. We strive to maintain our relationships with these organisations and together, empower the people of Limpopo.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu heard word of our work in Vhembe and recorded this message to the TVEP team, commending our “sterling work” and our embodiment of the “unbuntu” spirit. We are so humbled that our work has been recognised by the Archbishop and strive to continue to implement programmes that support and empower all people of Vhembe, regardless of colour, race, nationality, gender, income, or sexual orientation.
