2024 - Judiciary Application
to organise an End GBVF 100-Day Challenge

We are glad you are interested in organising a 100-Day Challenge to accelerate progress towards ending gender-based violence and femicide in your communities and courts to accelerate the implementation the National Strategic Plan on Gender-based Violence and Femicide (NSP).  This application is for entry into the Leadership Management – Development programme that aims to build the capacity of 100-Day Challenge Ambassadors to coordinate and facilitate 100-Day Challenges at a locality. 

Programme Detail

Capacity building

The programme aims to build capacity in municipalities, courts, and the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges to organise multi-stakeholder collective action that moves the needle on specific impact and outcome indicators related to the NSP.

Multi-year effort

This is part of a multi-year effort to end gender-based violence and femicide in our country. At the core of this effort is mobilising collective action in communities, using 100-Day Challenges to help turn intentions into impact. This builds on the successful 100-Day Challenges since 2021. 


The programme in 2024 is done in collaboration with our convening partners Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA), SALGA, the Justice sector, and the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). 

End GBVF Dashboard

The 100-Day Challenges will be fueled and guided by a national dashboard that enables each municipality and community to track its GBVF performance over time and in relation to other municipalities.

Capacity Building - Development Programme


This is a Leadership Management – Development Programme facilitated by the World of Impact. The programme will target district and regional level personnel from the participating communities and courts to be trained as Ambassadors, and at a local level, Team Coaches to support the Ambassadors and 100-day teams and to assemble baseline data related to the focus area of the 100-Day Challenge. Each Ambassador will work with 3-5 Team Coaches.  


One per region that will work with two or more courts to design and facilitate the 100-Day Challenge workshops. After the initial 100-day Challenge, Ambassadors can continue to organise additional 100-Day Challenges in other local areas with new team coaches. 

Team coaches

One or two team coaches per 100-Day Challenge in a local magistrate court who will primarily support the 100-Day teams during the implementation period. Team coaches will also support the Ambassador during the workshops.


We suggest the following positions as good candidates for the Leadership Management –  Development Programme – Area court managers, Sub-cluster heads, Chief or Senior Prosecutors, Justice Centre representatives (Legal Aid), and Deputy Directors of Prosecutions for SOCA.

It is important to note that the skills and experience the participants will gain, will enable them to organise and support other collective action efforts in courts and communities, and this will be a valuable career advancement tool.

Programme format

Each cohort of Ambassadors will go through a cycle that includes a 3-month preparation period and a 3,5-month implementation period.  

Preparation period

  • One-month training program for 24 Ambassadors that includes orientation sessions and 3 days of in-person training from 7-9 February.
  • One month for the Ambassadors to engage local courts to register their participation and recruit team coaches.  This will culminate in Local Leadership Design sessions with participating courts to select 100-Day Challenge focus areas and 100-day team members.
  • One month to build the capacity of the team coaches to support the 100-Day team and to assemble baseline data related to the focus area of the 100-Day Challenge.

Implementation period

Three more events punctuating the implementation period.
  • The Team Lift-off Workshop;
  • Refuelling Workshop; and
  • Landing Workshop. 

The 100-Day team members, selected by local leaders, will participate in these events.  With coaching support, ambassadors and team coaches will use the self-paced online learning platform to prepare before each event.

Time requirements for Ambassadors

The learning journey consists of:

  • Orientation training that includes virtual and face-to-face sessions
