By: Kat Furman
Global PACT is building an international network of individuals able to identify and solve problems in their communities. We offer practical, hands-on trainings that use real-life challenges to teach personal, project, and organizational development skills. We recognize our partners as the experts and stakeholders in their own community problems, and are non-ideological, non-partisan, and respectful of different cultures and values.
Activist Training in South Africa
What does it take to forge social change in South Africa? How do you confront issues as overwhelming as apartheid and its aftermath, poverty, crime, unemployment, clean water, racism, environmental degradation and AIDS, to name just a few? Which tough choices do you make when investing for the future?
Global business people, diplomats, aid officials, and employees of international organizations deal with these issues on a daily basis. But where will you get the knowledge, skills and attitudes to take on these issues? By joining Global PACT, you'll discover the fundamentals of social-change start-up and management by beginning a new project in South Africa through a unique partnership with Global PACT and Rhodes University.
