About this grant

Ditshwanelo CAR²AS assists people and communities in South Africa to better understand and deal with the impact of racism and sexism at both the individual and institutional level. Past efforts focused on transforming attitudes and practices through training and facilitation, research, and programs that combat racism and sexism. This grant will support the continuation of these activities for the next two years, when the major focus will be on establishing a learning and advocacy development center for rights-based learning; expanding a dialogue program; training facilitators; and using these facilitators to transform organizations and government agencies by addressing issues of racism, sexism, and economic justice.
