Bullying is fast becoming an epidemic across South Africa, with the media reporting that 57% of young children experience bullying in schools.
Today is National Anti-Bullying Day. In celebration of the day, JAG BullyProof, which is a part of the JAG Foundation, linked 19 schools from two communities in the Western Cape. The schools set off on a Superhero inspired walk through the Bonteheuwel Community with the final destination being Zimasa Primary school in Langa.
Africa Melane (standing in for Pippa Hudson) spoke to Alex Corin, Head of JAG Bully Proof about the walk and the kind of projects JAG BullyProof is working on.
