About Us

About KhulumaniThe mission of Khulumani is to build an inclusive and just society in which the dignity of people harmed by apartheid is restored through the process of transforming victims into victors.



The year under review has seen Khulumani’s engagements in supporting its membership deepen with the recognition of Khulumani Support Group as a member of the National Victim Em-powerment (VEP) Management Forum of the National Department of Social Development. This recognition has signalled a shift in the Department’s policies which provided services only for victims of crime committed after 1994. After more than twenty years of service to survivors of the gross hu-man rights violations of apartheid, Khulumani welcomed the DSD’s recognition of its work and its commitment to provide some support to Khulumani’s work, based on its development of specific programmes to address the deep wounding caused by the harms of the country’s past.

Khulumani’s work has also moved beyond its focus on apartheid atrocities to dealing also with post-apartheid gross violations. The recognition of the need for the services of Khulumani in providing community-based rehabilitation services was welcomed in the situation of diminishing global funding for South Africa as an identified middle-income country, despite the levels of destitution of half the country’s population.
