Agisanang Domestic Abuse Prevention and Training (ADAPT)

Agisanang Domestic Abuse Prevention and Training (ADAPT) is a section 21 Non profit Organisation which was founded in 1994. It started as a small entity focusing on providing counselling for abused women but due to demands from the community of Alexandra Township and its partners, it developed beyond counselling to community education, research, advocacy and lobbying as well as building community support for women through training of officials within various disciplines for abused women and vulnerable girl children. The beneficiaries of this service have expanded to include the youth, men and the elderly.

ADAPT is one of the first organisations in South Africa to introduce working with men as one of the effective strategies of confronting violence against women. The organisation is committed to changing social values and structural factors that perpetuate violence against women by promoting a spirit of interdependence, mutual respect and co-existence between men and women. ADAPT also assists people to deal effectively and efficiently with conflict by giving them the opportunity to explore their human relations and awareness skills. These bring about the possibility of better communication and co-operation between those in conflict.
