Count to 10

The Count to Ten campaign was developed by Ingred Bell, current CEO of FAMSA Bloemfontein, in October 2017 that originated from the idea of two participants at a MASHAV (Mashav is Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs) course, Combating Violence against Women and Children, in Israel. The campaign encourages all people to stop and think before they act with violence. The Count to Ten campaign makes people aware that their actions are their choice. Emotional self-regulation serves as a motivating tool to change thoughts and behavior to prevent violent behavior.
