Initial Request

Sasol together with LifeLine Southern Africa are running the Stop Gender Violence (SGV) Project.The purpose of the SGV helpline is to contribute to and facilitate a sustainable gender wellness environment through counselling, referral, education, training and support services.



The line provides anonymous, confidential and accessible telephonic information, counselling and referrals in all 11 official languages to survivors, witnesses and perpetrators of gender-based violence. The helpline is toll free and operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including public holidays.



The SGV was established in 1999 and was initially called Stop Women Abuse Helpline.

It did not only counsel women but more men called for assistance. These men are either perpetrators or victims of violence themselves. In 2004, the name of the helpline was formally broadened to incorporate issues of both sexes and to date the line at times receives 51% calls from men although more women make use of it.



Sasol makes a huge contribution to the SGV Project and help by funding some of the counsellors who are running the project to meet the demand for the service in South Africa.

The SGVL plays a crucial role in providing support to survivors of violence. On average it receives 9 000 calls a month and during the 16 Days of no violence against women and childrenâ?? campaign in November and December, it receives almost double the number of calls.



The helpline is available to anyone who is experiencing violence in any form and requires a reliable person to confide in. There is counselling and support available; just a telephone call away.
