Arts and Culture MEC engages with ChildLine SA

The stakeholder engagement comes after the Department of Arts and Culture was part of the uMkhosi weSivavane initiative, where issues affecting women and children were addressed

AS part of celebrating Women’s Month, KZN MEC for Arts and Culture, Hlengiwe Mavimbela, met with Childline SA on issues of social cohesion across the province.

Mavimbela said it was important to engage Childline SA, as it deals with issues pertaining to children.

‘Our engagement will assist in improving programmes within the department, especially those dealing with vulnerable groups.

The stakeholder engagement comes after the Department of Arts and Culture was part of the uMkhosi weSivavane initiative, where issues affecting women and children were addressed.

‘Through the discussions we we identified a gap to further engage with other stakeholders as there were many issues raised by women.

‘One of the challenges raised by the women was the issue of parenting, and as the department responsible for nation building and social cohesion it is important that we meet with organisations such as Childline SA to assist in addressing issues raised by the women through various platforms within the department,’ she said.
