The Table of Peace and Unity calls for unified action against child abuse and rape

Inspiring People

The horrific story of Anene Booysen in Bredasdorp has opened our eyes and ears to what is happening every day to our children throughout South Africa. Abuse has reached catastrophic levels. In South Africa, a girl has a better chance of being raped than learning to read. It is estimated that a child is raped every 17 seconds, which is totally unacceptable. Ordinary South Africans are standing up to say that we refuse to be the rape capital of the world.


On Mother’s Day, 12 May, The Table of Peace and Unity will bring together 700 celebrities, religious leaders, citizens from all walks of life and captains of industry on Table Mountain to join together against child abuse and in particular, child sexual abuse. We will break bread at a sumptuous feast prepared by top South African chefs, enjoy excellent entertainment and breakthrough our differences to present a united front against this terrible epidemic.


All funds raised from ticket sales and auctions at the event are used to purchase safe homes, equipment and supplies for charities focusing on the needs of our vulnerable children. To date, the Table of Peace and Unity has raised over R14 million for more than 20 organisations around the country.


The Table of Peace and Unity invites organisations addressing the needs of vulnerable children in South Africa, especially those working to prevent child sexual abuse, to contact us. Tell us how we can partner to make a difference and stop the abuse of our children.


Join us at The Table of Peace and Unity. Or, we invite you to set up your own table and break bread with your friends, family and neighbours on your street. Tickets are available from Computicket.
