The National Religious Association for Social Development (NRASD) was established by representatives of the religious organisations (Baha’i, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Islamic and Jewish) involved in a national conference on the transformation of welfare in South Africa,hosted in Cape Town by the EFSA Institute. The basic approach of the NRASD is to strengthen the capacity and programmes of existing networks to enable them to play an even bigger role in this field.  Together the religious groups represent by far the largest networks for social, welfare and development work in South Africa.
