ORLANDO PIRATES’ PLEDGE

We at Orlando Pirates recognise:
•    That women are the base and children the future of our society
•    That violence against women and children is like waging a war on ourselves as a nation

We at Orlando Pirates therefore pledge:
•    To be vocal and speak out against violence targeted at women and children
•    To be exemplary through our deeds and serve as role models
•    To be supportive to women and children affected by violence

Like manners once did, violence is now shaping and obsessing our society. If we do not stop it, it will stop us, and our children will have a bleak future.
