"BE THE CHANGE & STAND FOR WHAT IS RIGHT'
VOICE IT IN ACTION (VIIA) is a registered (2016/085283/08) Non-Profit Company, which was founded by Kgothatso Moloto to curb the heightened violent culture witnessed in South Africa and the rest of the Africa through innovative programs, projects and campaigns. At VIIA we seek a more harmonised society, to confronting issues grounded on violence, and raise awareness with regards to violence against men, women and children.
“The concept for VOICE IT IN ACTION (VIIA) was formed after the traumatic incident of a kidnapping and eventual murder of Ipeleng Christine Moholane (age 19) in 2015. This was an eye opener to this grave problem faced by many people in the world. In South Africa alone, a girl goes missing or a body is found every day, and this does not affect women and girls, but also men and boys. – Ipeleng will forever be missed,” said Moloto.
Social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter and Instargram, with most activity on Facebook) were created to raise awareness about the organisation and the plans to fight against violence. (VIIA) is not limited to these social media platforms alone, it is looking into creating a platform exclusively cantered around the fight against the violent nature in the world in order to pave the way for a harmonized society.

One of my missions in life is to advance in the fight against the increasing violence in society. In November 2016 I decided to focus fully on the organisation; VOICE IT IN ACTION (VIIA) to serve this purpose.
The daily reports of murders, rapes, petty crimes and thefts have left me in a state of panic and fear regarding the safety and security crisis faced in our country, this affects not only my family and friends but my community and the society at large.
The purpose of this message is to request for sponsorship (mainly financially) or any other means (e.g. buying of VIIA T-shirts to be worn on Fridays). The sales of VIIA T-shirts will also enable continued VIIA projects and campaigns to fight (raise awareness, create solutions etc…) against violence whilst continuing with plans to secure sustainable sponsorship/s. NB: T-shirts will be made available soon -
