Matrix understands the importance of the Car Seats for Kids initiative; educating all road users, both young and old of safety initiatives to ensure a brighter tomorrow. The initiative reaches and sees collaboration from the general public, government and corporates across the nation; started by Peggie Mars as a once-off favour for a friend in Cape Town, the initiative exploded in Johannesburg and it continues to gain momentum. Matrix spoke to Peggie to understand how the initiative was started, its impact and where it's going; Johan Jonck of Arrive Alive and Niki Cronje of Imperial joined the discussion. Peggie explains the initiative as being 'her path', as she paves the way to make a difference and ensure a safer tomorrow - we will be right by her side.

As Brand South Africa puts it - just imagine if, for 16 days, there was no rape and no child abuse. In our country this would be a huge deal, with a massive tally of those saved. The 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign challenges South Africans to declare a truce on violence against women and children - and ultimately to make this a permanent one.
