Take a stand against abuse

News >>

HGG Financial Group is proud to be associated with the annual 1000 Women 1 Voice event in Cape Town. We invite you to join us for lunch on 11 May 2017 to take a stand against violence directed at women and children.

The news headlines are rife with stories of the abuse against women and girls that takes place in our country every single day. 1000 Women 1 Voice is calling all South Africans – men and women – to stand together and speak out against this unacceptable violence.

By supporting 1000 Women 1 Voice you take a stand on behalf of all South African women and girls. The proceeds of the luncheon help to equip women-led initiatives across South Africa to bring hope, protection and knowledge to women and girls.

"I believe every South African should get involved in this initiative. Join me and make yourself heard," says Wendy Ackerman, patron of 1000 Women Trust.

"The HGG Financial Group is proud to be involved in this initiative. I believe an investment in women is an investment in the future," says Hendrik Gerryts, CEO.

The 1000 Women 1 Voice luncheon will take place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on Thursday, 11th May 2017 from 12:00 to 14:30. This exciting event offers live music, wonderful entertainment, a great goody bag, and plenty of networking opportunities.
