Safety Awareness Class

We hold Saftey Awareness classes monthly. Bertha's Legacy and Bertha's Place work together with partners to host a two-hour safety awareness event. Twenty-five survivors of gender-based violence and domestic abuse are introduced to safety awareness. The topics covered include:

  • Awareness

  • Boundary setting

  • Risk reduction and avoidance

  • Verbal skills and strategies to avoid conflict

  • Physical skills to stop assault

  • Recognising criminal ploys and tricks

  • Fitness

  • Yoga and Breathing techniques

These classes help build and restore  our ladies' self-confidence.  

Sponsored Weight Loss

During the month of August, our very own Thembi Chigwada undertook the Pound for Pound challenge. This was a sponsored weight loss challenge with a target loss of 10 lbs. We are happy to say she absolutely SMASHED this target and lost a total of 12 lbs!

Thembi raised a total £700 for our cause while getting healthy.


We hope to have more healthy challenges that other team members will join in on.

Economic Empowerment workshop

Our Economic Empowerment Workshops  were held on September 19th & 20th, and Dec 1st & 2nd. Bertha's Legacy worked together with partners to host two-day workshops. Twenty survivors of gender-based violence and domestic abuse were prepared for running a home-based business.  The ladies received instruction in Financial Literacy, Marketing, Branding, and Chemical Handling. Product names and tag lines were chosen and labels were designed for their products: Dishwashing Liquid and Bath Foam. Under expert supervision, our ladies prepared and packaged their first batches of product. They left as proud owners of a home-based business and ready to trade.
