South Africa Today: From Freedom to Transformation, Deepening the Voice of the People

Where do we stand?

Fifteen years ago, in 1995, when South Africa was just starting out on the long road of transition, Harold Wolpe wrote about the expectations of that extraordinary journey from apartheid to democracy, from freedom to transformation.

Development Approaches

Many organisations are guided by welfare approach while providing their services. During the session: 'when is it welfare and when is it development'; it was interesting that there were arguments that organisations need to move from welfare approach towards development approach.

Community Based Worker Systems: Guidelines for Practitioners

Community Based Worker Systems: Guidelines for Practitioners aims to assist practitioners and implementing partners to run community-based worker (CBW) systems more effectively, to maximise impacts for clients of the service, and to empower communities, the CBWs themselves, and to assist governments to ensure that services are provided at scale to enhance livelihoods. The guidelines focus on how to run the CBW system rather than technicalities around HIV/AIDS or natural resources issues. The guidelines are generic and draw primarily from work in South Africa, Uganda, Kenya and Lesotho.

Putting Culture First: Commonwealth Perspectives on Culture and Development

This report is based on close consultation with the citizens, civil society and governments of  Commonwealth countries and pays attention to the neglected ingredient of culture. The report highlights what the connections between culture and development look like in closer detail, over and above the simple assertion that they exist. This publication takes as its starting point the notion that culture is a fundamental component of sustainable development, and asks readers to consider the implications of this approach.
