Active Citizens: Who we become

Who we becomeVictim re-empowerment is in the hands of victims themselves. In becoming the active participants in their own lives, in a supportive environment, victims are progressively transformed into victors.

Grahamstown: a sleepy Eastern Cape city probably best known as the seat of Rhodes University and for hosting the annual National Arts Festival, but recently making waves for less celebrated reasons.

The Carte Blanche programme of 29 September 2013 (http://bit.ly/16OxHVa) told the stories of Grahamstown's water woes that leave residents without water for prolonged periods. In the video presenter Leigh Bennie interviewed, among others, the chairperson of the Water for Dignity project, Mbulelo Lepile.

A meeting of a new Khulumani group took place in the Veekraal Community Centre in Soweto-on-Sea in Port Elizabeth on March 30, 2014.

On Thursday 20 February, the Right2Know Campaign and SOS Coalition held a Civil Society workshop on the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Green Paper in Johannesburg. Khulumani was represented by Ms Angela Tembo, Ms Gloria Fisher and Mr Frans Mogajane.

The paper addresses broadcasting, postal services, telecommunications, e-services, cyber security, e-literacy and universal access and service. The paper is proposed to help accelerate South Africa‚Äôs industrial policy.

Over the course of the past three years, the relationship of Khulumani's Gogos with a group of Gogos and Mamas in Sydney, Australia has been growing. 

The activities of the Australian group have focused on fundraising in support of the Khulumani Gogos, grandmothers who are responsible for supporting households in which there are no breadwinners.

Here is an image gallery with photo's of the day of action last Friday, 14 March 2014 where Grahamstown learners became involved in the Khulumani Water for Dignity School Water Forums.
