The SHOUT campaign, driven by local artists and celebrities from across the country - has once again got tongues wagging and citizens ‘shouting’ for a safer South Africa!
Since its launch in February 2010, the civil society anti-crime initiative has lived up to its commitment to the public, to make a tangible difference in the lives of both crime victims and crime fighters across the nine provinces.

Shout has donated hundreds of thousands of rands to various causes which focus on crime fighting, crime prevention and rehabilitation. SHOUT has also been involved in touching the lives of ordinary South Africans, by assisting police in the search for missing children to helping crime victims whose lives were shattered at the hands of criminals.

The movement was launched following the murder of music legend, Lucky Dube, during a botched hijacking. Musician, Danny K, and kwaito star, Kabelo Mabalane, felt that something needed to be done about the high levels of violent crime in the country. They subsequently founded the SHOUT Foundation, which brought together 55 top local musicians and celebrities to re-record the hit 80’s single “SHOUT”, by Tears for Fears.

On 15 March this year, SHOUT’s new anthem, ‘You’re the Voice’, was launched in Gauteng. Top local musicians, celebrities and personalities once again came together to record the new song which has been hailed as a major success.

‘You're the Voice’ was originally written by Andy Qunta, Keith Reid, Maggie Ryder and Chris Thompson for John Farnham, which was released in 1986.
Proudly South African also attended the Cape Town launch on 21 March, Human Rights Day, in support of the initiative.
The launch was held in partnership with Crime Line, 567 Cape Talk and 94.5 Kfm. South African celebrities at the event included Danny K, Kabelo Mabalane, Karen Zoid, Elana Afrika, Bryan Habana and Katlego Maboe among others.
Proudly SA CEO, Adv. Leslie Sedibe was one of the guest speakers and reiterated the importance for people to respect life and human rights.
Proudly SA supports SHOUT and its efforts to create a better South Africa for all.  
“You’re the Voice” is available for download onto cell phones at a cost of R20. SMS the word ‘VOICE’ to 49300. The music video can also be viewed on YouTube. A revolutionary new Shout App can also be downloaded for free onto android phones and will allow members of the public to report and fight crime.
