More About Us

Thematic Focus
Anchoring Democracy

To uphold the integrity of the governmental systems and ensure it is anchored in serving the interests of all who live in this country, especially those who are socially, economically & politically the weakest.

Economic Transformation

To modernize the economy, optimize productivity and deal aggressively with poverty, inequality and the economic marginalisation of the majority.

Comprehensive Quality Education

To modernise education and have it promote a citizenry that is values based and cohesive, while deliberately articulating well into economic productivity and innovation.

Healing for Reconciliation

To deal with the deep South African woundedness of racism, ethnicity, gender, family, brokenness, intersectional identity and the need for public consensus on national values and standards of being, towards a common national identity and constitutional culture.

Giving is an act of worship, affection & love for Jesus
