Shattering Shackles

Shattering Shackles aims to provide a support structure for, and growth of existing collaborative projects targeting Trafficking in Persons, Gender-Based Violence and Sexual Offences. This includes investigations, reporting, referrals and resources that would lead to the potential arrest and prosecution of perpetrators and the rescue and protection of victims 

Established by Chantal Coetzee, this NPO is fighting against Trafficking in Persons, and aims to see perpetrators imprisoned and their captives set free. This most heinous organized crime is destroying millions of lives every year, not only through sexual exploitation, but also in forced labour, child labour, servitude, the harvesting and selling of body parts, baby farming and all forms of slavery.

Services provided by ShatteringShackles include: • The gathering of data and partnering with law enforcement, social workers and prosecutors, so that victims can be rescued, and perpetrators arrested. • Training of police and social workers helps them to recognize indicators and potential trafficking cases, as well as the relevant laws, regulations, and directives in handling such cases. • Age-appropriate awareness and the Protective Behaviours Program run in schools, makes children less vulnerable to being trafficked. • Public awareness and education gets the community involved, increases the reporting of potential cases and reduces risk to individuals.

 

 

Covid-19 has presented many challenges for fundraising in the last 2 years but every donation, big or small, adds up and helps us to continue to disrupt the exploitation of the most vulnerable, especially children and women.

 

Our needs include :  Sponsorship of a car or funds to buy one. • Volunteers to assist with fundraising projects and public relations.

We also aim to increase awareness and education for State Departments, civil society, and those who are at highest risk of being trafficked, including neglected, orphaned and homeless children, school children, prostituted women and those addicted to dependence-forming substances.

Funds raised cover general costs of operations to fulfil our objectives. Currently, our primary area of focus is Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, with plans to expand in the near future.

Project 1:

Pilot My Future is a division, rather than a "project", that teaches Protective Behaviours and age-appropriate trafficking awareness in schools

Project 2:

Projects are ongoing and usually align with special calendar days such as Women's Day, Anti-Trafficking Day and Month, 16-Days of Activism Against Violence Against Women and Children, etc.

Project 3:

We started a project called "Project eDNA" (Empower DNA), to deal with the backlog of Sexual Offences evidence not being processed by the Forensics Lab due to lack of government funding, but we are not currently focusing on this project, until Shattering Shackles as a whole, is financially more stable.
