  • Human Rights Peer Education.  Youth from diverse backgrounds are provided a 3 day intensive human rights training annually.  The program aims to train young adults in human right and social cohesion with a requirement that they take their knowledge back to their respective communities and disseminate the information obtained amongst their peers in their schools, churches and/or organizations, usually through the form of workshops, hereby promoting social cohesion and stopping the spread of discrimination. Applications are accepted from annually beginning in September and ending in November. For more details see the Call for Application.
  • Social Cohesion. Africa Unite works to create opportunities for ongoing social interaction between people from diverse backgrounds in order to promote a sense of social cohesion within the communities.
  • Lobbying and Advocacy targets government structures, individuals, and civil society in order to advance the construction of a social and political environment in which the rights of South African nationals and non-nationals are promoted and protected.
