On Friday, March 14 2014, Khulumani's in-service trainees will present their implementation plans for introducing the Kumnandi model of small-scale organic production in their own areas - the semi-formal peri-urban large settlements in and around Khutsong in the West Rand goldfields of Gauteng; the rural district of Moutse in Limpopo Provincce with its long-standing history of community activism and in the south coast area of Amanzimtoti in KwaZulu Natal.
March 14 is International Rivers Day. It is an International Day of Action for people to speak in the name of rivers which cannot speak for themselves, about what threatens rivers and the communities that depend on rivers.
This year Khulumani Water for Dignity will celebrate the day by launching School Water Forums in all 22 schools in Grahamstown East.

On February 19, 2014, Judy Seidman and Nomarussia Bonase visited with the Marikana widows in Pretoria for several hours at their request.
Judy shared the short film that she had produced of the workshop with the widows. The widows felt that the video accurately reflected their ideas and they requested that it be shown widely.
They also suggested that further video installments be produced to tell their stories, especially as they are still treated as mere observers of the Farlam Commission proceedings. Each widow received a copy of the DVD.
