2020 has been a year of great overcoming as we’ve helped our beneficiaries keep their businesses afloat, and watched with pride as they’ve given it their all. Yet 2020 has also been a year of great pain, loss and sorrow. Join us to share a moment of silence for the lives we’ve lost to the Covid-19 pandemic, the scourge of gender-based violence that afflicts our nation, and the devastated loved ones they have left behind. Through our mourning as a nation, may we rise in hope, and heal in time. #5daysofmourningSA

As the pandemic struck, and our SMMEs were faced with the harsh economic climate and the challenge of pivoting simply to ensure that their businesses survive, we launched our #HopeSays campaign to inspire these entrepreneurs to keep striving for greatness. Now, a few months later, we feel strongly that part of keeping hope alive is stopping to acknowledge those who, sadly, have not made it. May we never forget those who have been laid to rest as a result of the coronavirus. May we never forget to comfort those left behind, as they grapple with devastation. May we never forget those who have suffered in silence at the hands of aggressors, and the victims who have sadly not lived to tell the tale. May we never back down in our fight to protect women and children from #GBV, through unity, through tech solutions and using our voice for good. No matter what comes to pass in our nation and beyond, May hope never fade. #5daysofmourningSA #Hope

Knowledge is power. While we mourn the state of #GBV in our nation, it is in our nature to turn towards solutions during our country’s time of need. Tech has made big strides in helping women and children through protection, alerting and location devices, but it’s important to note that these solutions have their roots in observations, information and insights. On a community level, the first line of prevention is awareness. We encourage you to educate your children, friends and family about #GBV and inspire positive and preventative action whenever possible. We support you, and we believe that women and children deserve better. #GBV #iamnotnext #GBVSA #standtogether #education #awareness #knowledgeispower #womenintech - For more Innovator Trust info, updates and inspiring success stories, be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel.
