Speak out! Natalie Chapman gives a voice to survivors!
180 Gigs in 90 Days in 90 Towns! Giving a voice to survivors of violent and sexual crimes. The #90Days2015 tour runs till Monday, 27th April 2015. Natalie will travel over 15 000 kms across South Africa, visiting 90 different towns and performing 180 gigs in 90 consecutive days.
The objective of #90Days2015 is simple for Natalie Chapman: to reach one person in each town to encourage survivors to speak out about their experiences in order to find healing, and to also motivate and mobilise everyday South Africans to get involved in helping women, men and children who have suffered an ordeal.
Listen to my chat with her, here:
Apart from spreading her message at performances in community halls, live music venues, and theatres, Chapman will also be performing at women's and children's shelters, children's homes and schools during the day to motivate and encourage our youth to protect themselves, speak out when they become victims and change the future of the country by being involved in creating better communities for themselves.

Mommy Matters - Raising a blended family in the South African context
Flicky Gildenhuys is a family and relationship therapist and also the author of the book "Blending Families" - A practical guide to negotiating the challenges step-families face. Flicky has a degree in Psychology from the University of Cape Town and has a passion for families that spans three decades and has resulted in several innovative parenting programmes.
Having raised six children in a blended family, Flicky understands both the joy and turmoil that comes from having to deal with the past before one can build a foundation for the future. I spoke to her about her book and the blended family in South Africa. Here are some of the questions I asked:
Sketch some of the challenges step-families face? What are some of the complex issues South African families face? Define the term “blended family”. How important are family traditions and rituals? When should parents be concerned about their 6 – 9yr old child withing the blended family situation? Take a listen to her conversation here!
