Programs

Healing workshops focus on emotional content and individual stories. Workshops are complemented by reunions and second phase workshops. Reunions encourage participants in their journey towards healing. Second phase workshops deal with anger, hatred and forgiveness. The Youth Programme aims to sensitise youth to the impact the apartheid era had on all groups of people. Its intent is to motivate youth to take an active part in shaping a society that upholds human rights, justice and equality.
