Our “Trainer of Trainers” Model

Designed for sustainable growth. Teams of motivated and passionate young instructors and facilitators, themselves from disadvantaged communities, are trained and thereby empowered to become Trainers themselves. This enables Action Breaks Silence to dramatically extend its reach.

Action Breaks Silence has taught over 150 trainers in South Africa to deliver.

Building Safer Communities – Trainer Story: Selaelo

Trainer Salaelo
“The first time I heard about Action Breaks Silence was in 2015 when I was doing an Administration Course. They asked for people who were interested in finding a job and I was chosen. I was just looking for a job, but the first time I listened to Debi when she was teaching in Soweto it felt like she was talking about me! It opened up old wounds, and that’s the day I found closure - it was November 2015.

Action Breaks Silence have helped me to live a free lifestyle, to not live in fear of violence and to not get involved in an abusive relationship. I now know that nobody has control over my life and that it is not about them, but about me. I have more self-confidence and I can speak to people without preparing myself - and I can protect myself against getting hurt.

I have an uncle who has abused me physically and emotionally in the past. I have made peace with him and I hope he will change, as he has promised to do, and to become a better person.”
