In South Africa, safety is both a reality and a feeling. More than 70% of South Africans feel unsafe most of the time. As a result, one in four people suffer from anxiety and depression. More than ever, South Africans need a sense of certainty during unprecedented times.

Human behaviour is seldom rational – people are strongly driven by emotions. Our response to a person, place or situation is often as much about our emotional state as our rational one – sometimes even more so. Perception is indeed often reality, which is why it’s so important to acknowledge and understand human behaviour and creates solutions that accommodate it and help South Africans feel safe. Only then does concern convert into confidence. It is when this change flows, that momentum truly grows.
