Call for Applications or Nominations for Volunteer Board Members for Khulumani Support Group: Closing date: 31 May 2018

Khulumani Support Group is a national organisation of over 100,000 members, founded in 1995 by survivors and family members of victims of our country’s apartheid past to support the unfinished struggle for justice, redress and the restoration of the dignity of those who suffered for freedom and justice. The organisation also addresses the intergenerational impacts of apartheid violations that perpetuate poverty and inequality today. More information about Khulumani can be found on the website:

The Khulumani National Steering Committee, the organisation’s highest decision-making body that represents Khulumani membership from all the country’s provinces, has resolved to call for applications and/or nominations for volunteers to be board members.

Board members are expected to:

i) commit themselves to the mission of Khulumani Support Group: “to build an inclusive, just and peaceful society in which the dignity of people harmed by gross violations of human rights is restored through -
- Sustained advocacy for social justice and human rights;
- Community narrative and documentation processes;
- Social reconciliation processes;
- The economic reintegration of victims and survivors;
- Developing learning communities to provide health, psycho-social, socio-economic and paralegal services”;

ii) assist in helping resolve the “unfinished business” of the country’s transition to democracy as it relates to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, especially for victims and survivors and their families;

iii) assist and support the National Contact Centre and its Director and the National Steering Committee in identifying and addressing important human rights and social justice issues that stem from the past and continue into the present;

iv) promote the sustainability of the organisation through identifying and connecting Khulumani’s management with potential donors, partners and supporters towards securing support for, or investment in the organisation’s programmes and its resource mobilisation strategy. This may involve active fundraising;

v) strengthen existing partnerships and relationships with government at all levels;

vi) participate in quarterly board meetings, either physically or electronically, at which quarterly financial and other reports are presented and discussed;
