News

Our fortnightly dialogues with CWD Tafelsig are always powerful, but it is not an easy. The community of Tafelsig, in the Cape Flats, have many difficulties they wish to find a way through, and all of them are doing the hard work to improve their lives, and their community.  This dialogue was no different:

“Drugs and lack of money were the two issues present in the room right to the end of the dialogue. At one time, lack of education and communication became the most significant voices.
Participants are energized around the action chosen… to decide for themselves how to celebrate the community. “- NNI Agent Sylvester

Land restitution without compensation

A longing for justice and a demand for fairness were both vented. The question “How does one appropriately express the anger evoked without being consumed by it?” lingered in the room…

“The group was excited and motivated to organise a march in collaboration with other organisations in Tafelsig. They expressed how they felt lighter, refreshed, encouraged and had more understanding of the system. They were excited at the breakthrough that they had with the gang members (role played) and saw that if someone tells the truth the system is set free. One of the pearls of wisdom was “The Truth will set us Free”. The group chose to end off with a group hug and powerful prayer.” – NNI Agent Bronwen
