Our “Trainer of Trainers” Model

Used to upskill young people living in the communities that the Action Breaks Silence delivers programmes in.

The programme is designed for sustainable growth. Action Breaks Silence will identify and upskill local young men and women from the communities that the Action Breaks Silence delivers programmes in. New teams of motivated and passionate young instructors will initially assist more experienced Action Breaks Silence leaders. By year two of the programme the trainers should be in a position to lead the workshops and start training new trainers.

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.”
