About this grant

The Constitution Hill Trust helps South Africans to respect their constitution, human rights, and democracy through their experience of the Constitution Hill precinct, which houses the Constitutional Court. Constitution Hill serves as a living memory of South Africa’s transition to democracy and a place where shared heritage and a common future are celebrated. It also runs programs that educate young South Africans about the constitution, its principles and workings, and the value and importance of democracy and human rights. This grant will assist the grantee to develop a museum of the Constitution. The museum will contain a dedicated memory centre and will be housed within a new visitor center.
