This may come as a shock, but Blink SEO isn’t (yet) a bunch of robots churning out SEO-friendly content and helping clients grow.
There are real people behind the screens— people who, like most of us, want to make a difference, however small or large that may be.
We want to make our mark on the world in more ways than just SEO. It’s really important to every member of our team that our company has a meaningful impact on those most in need.
That’s why we support thee Green Door, a grassroots initiative supporting victims of sexual violence in Diepsloot, one of the most impoverished townships in Johannesburg, South Africa.
What is Green Door?
The Green Door initiative was set up by Brown Lekekela in 2011 to provide temporary shelter, emotional counselling, care packages and pathways to criminal justice to victims of rape and abuse in the local community.
As well as being one of the poorest neighbourhoods in Johannesburg, Diepsloot suffers staggering levels of sexual violence. Between 2013 and 2017, the Diepsloot police force recorded 500 sexual assaults, but it is likely that many more went unreported.
The Green Door in the news
How we support them
Blink SEO has been a regular donor to the Green Door project for several years now, helping Lekekela’s ability to provide services to those affected by sexual violence in Diepsloot.
But now we’re doing something bigger.
The priority for The Green Door is currently to purchase a vehicle to transport victims to the hospital, to police, and to court. We have started an ambitious crowdfunding venture we hope other local businesses may be interested in, share and contribute to.
