An insanely detailed and meticulous listing to help communities without access to data get help and resourcing.

– Karen Brokensha

One of the biggest obstacles to equality in South Africa is access to information.

Those who can afford it and know how to navigate their way around the Internet have unfettered access to knowledge and information that gives them a distinct advantage when it comes to exploring opportunities, developing their own potential and finding solutions to problems.

Unfortunately, this liberating storehouse of information is not accessible to millions of South Africans in a meaningful way because of high data costs, poor reception, intermittent electricity supply, lack of adequate equipment, and lack of knowledge to fully exploit the gifts of the Internet. And, as we have witnessed with the pandemic, the world’s information and interaction is moving online, making it increasingly difficult for resource-poor communities to participate or to find information to make their lives work.

That’s why South African Conversations is printing a DIRECTORY of non-profit, civil society and government resources and services that are available online and offline. Take a look at the flip-book, below, to get an idea of the depth of research and the quality of information that you can expect from the printed book.

And yes, the content will, eventually, be available online, as well as in print.
