Lesedi la Setjhaba Family and Community Centre was established to respond to family disintegration problems, individual empowerment, mental wellness as well as community development, focusing on challenges and issues of poverty, inequality, gender-based violence injustices in the community.

The organisation aims to empower women who are victims of crime by providing psycho-social support through assessment, financial support, moral support, counselling, family intervention, referrals of children in such environments. The organisation also assists victims of GBV who are often women, who come from disadvantaged communities, to fill in the protection order application forms written in English which is a barrier to them. We also listen to their stories and write them in a way that is expected by the courts if they wish to take their cases to court.
