Advocacy and Outreach News

This area of operation includes our own peoples as well as carrying the messages of Human rights and Democracy advocacy arising out of repatriated heritage content. This takes the form of speaking engagements, global collaborations  and exhibitions both locally and internationally.

To date, this Ifa Lethu has not only initiated events, exhibitions and projects to spread the world locally and globally, but our staff have received many invitations from other local and global bodies, governments and organisations to speak at various events. It is this willingness to share our strengths, hopes and programmes that we spread the word of our work, our actions, and our successes.

Advocacy and Outreach are essential to our development projects, and to the eradication of poverty and the spread of creative entrepreneurship.

“You may have come to advocacy on your own, it may be part of your job or you may have been asked to “put a face” on a campaign by serving as its spokesperson. You may be acting as a lone crusader or as part of a larger advocacy effort. Either way, you share an objective with all other advocates: to have your story move audiences from apathy to empathy to action.”
