Unlike most periodicals out there, neither our monthly magazine, nor our annual Resource Directory were created to indulge advertisers, but to help eradicate poverty, unemployment and socio-economic inequality in South Africa.

Articles and information in South African Conversations offer practical solutions to issues that affect our communal lives. As such, the magazine speaks to South Africans of all races and all walks of life and cuts across all social strata and lifestyle segments.

South African Conversations truly is an LSM-defier and demography-breaker.

The magazine is initially of interest to affluent people as a compassion purchase, but soon, readers tell us, they buy the magazine for its content as much as to help someone.

Readers who cannot afford to buy the magazine get it through corporate employee subscriptions or through institutional bulk subscriptions for schools, libraries, clinics, hospitals, prisons, community centres, etc.
