The past violent outbreaks of xenophobic attacks, which resulted in the deaths of many foreign nationals in South Africa, threatens the lives and livelihoods of refugees, asylum seekers, economic migrants and other locally defined outsiders including domestic migrants and ethnic minorities. Therefore if the above problem is addressed, foreigners will benefit as they will be able to juxtapose with locals in peace and harmony.
We will reach out to communities affected by violence to reduce fear, assist victims, and improve reporting of incidents. Promote human dignity through the promotion and protection of human rights, raise awareness of anti-racism, equality and anti-discrimination issues among public officials, civil society and the general public, mobilizing support from a wide range of people. Dedicate more oversight, training, human and financial resources to anti xenophobia programming.
We will assist refugees and asylum seekers to have viable and sustainable livelihoods. We will also reduce discriminatory practices by publicly promoting positive and attitudes and a greater understanding. We will improve refugees and asylum seekers' access to basic needs and essential services, particularly education. We will promote peace and harmony between foreign nationals and local. We will reduce the number of avoidable deaths to foreigners living in South Africa.
