About this grant

The project goal is to increase the activism capacity of community paralegals to be able to advocate for systemic solutions to systemic injustices. To this end, the Tshisimani Centre for Activist Education will design and test a tailored training curriculum geared towards increasing activists’ capacity and building solidarity across nonprofits working in the justice sphere in South Africa. The grantee was established in 2015 with the mandate to assist activists in building their own capacities, using creative means to elevate injustices and seeking solutions to addressing them.
