Social Justice Coalition, (SJC) Khayelitsha, Western Cape
I am responsible for coordinating the SJC's education activities, the curriculum for political education and program education. I also head the SJC's fellowship programme.
My work requires me to address various issues ranging from spatial apartheid in post-apartheid South Africa, security of tenure for people living in informal settlements and access to dignified service for poor and working class communities around Cape Town, especially in informal settlements.
I am motivated by my vision of “building a country that addresses the injustices of our past whilst seeking alternatives for a just, inclusive and equal country. I am fortunate to work in a space where I am able to live out my politics even in the work place because the work that I do is aligned to my personal commitment to social justice in South Africa.
In both my life and work, I always address issues of structural and systematic inequality through using innovative and popular education to help others understand various political issues in both our immediate surroundings and the global village at large.
