Big Issue Human Rights training session PDF Print E-mail
9 April 2008-06-04

ImageThe Big Issue is a socially responsible non-profit organisation that enables willing, unemployed and marginalised adults to take responsibility for their own lives through a developmental employment programme. The Big Issue is a non-profit job creation non-governmental organisation (NGO) established in 1996 that publishes a general interest monthly magazine sold by a vendor force of unemployed, homeless and socially excluded adults. This is backed-up by a social development programme of vendor support, vocational, life and business skills training and guidance counselling, which aids them to move back into mainstream society.

Gender DynamiX was invited by The Big Issue to present a workshop to the Cape Town branch’s vendors. Tebogo Nkoana, outreach officer at Gender DynamiX co-presented with Liesl Theron a morning session about basic Human Rights using a gender non confirming lens. People were given the chance to unpack questions about masculinity and femininity, dynamics between genders and ways to access services and information about equality courts. About 25 participants attended.
