OUR JOURNEY

Picture 1.png

2016

Register as NPO, kick off our journey to convene engagements between active citizens in government, business and community using the Letsema Process.

2016-2018

What we did

Host a series of Ubuntu Workshops with experts in various fields attending Henley Business School. 

What was learned

As part of the programme, students worked with community-based organisations but after their tenure  there was no follow-through. 

Outcome

Civic awareness is not something that can be taught academically.  Engagements that underpin  commitment are more likely to build trust and have meaningful  outcomes.

2018

What we did

Facilitate the Club of Rome Youth Conference in Cape Town. 

What was learned

Young people are eager to mobilise around solutions,  not crises. They are concerned about powerful institutions who are all talk and no action.

Outcome

Today the Club of Rome organisation places strong emphasis on African youth liberating their own future. The organisation is actively pursuing agendas that stand to impact the way systems interact through Ubuntu, inclusivity and emergence.  

Stellenbosch Cape Town South Africa

2019-2020

What we did
Convene a series dialogues with activists professionals, academics and public officials to working toward Accelerating Social Housing in South Africa for Absa. 

What was learned

Communities have innovative ways of solving their own problems, dialogue can enable connecting their knowledge with the those who help can deliver their vision.  

Outcome

 Dialogues were discontinued with COVID interrupting our ability to follow through on findings .

2021 - 2022

What we did

Mining house Sibanye-Stillwater asked us to support with engagement of impacted stakeholders  for their Renewal Programme.  We convened the first in a series of Pitso’s  (‘traditional assemblies’ ) in 2022 to honour those directly affected by the 2012 Marikana Massacre.

What was learned

In the months leading up to the Pitso we met regularly with community representatives, government, religious and tribal leaders. Relationship and trust building is key to open and constructive engagements. 

Outcome

The series of engagements continues to support willing family members to work toward closure and reclaiming their agency..

What we did
Convene the second annual Pitso by hosting coalition of willing stakeholders from across sectors in the mining community to share solutions toward socio-economic development. 

What was learned

Piloting a reimagined SA where we 'walk together', one community at a time means systematically leaving no-one behind. Most Renewal Programme conversations are only at the first step of the Letsema Process: Co-discover.

Outcome

The Renewal Programme is a work-in-progress conversation.  Going forward, these platforms will continue to offer opportunities and learnings for our nation's champions to put their commitment to action with the guidance of the Letsema Process. 

What we did

Convene a series of engagements with community-based NGO's in the Marikana region. 

What was learned

Community-based leaders are eager to create ecosystems to drive collaborative best practice.

Outcome

Allow time for community organisations that expressed the desire to self-organise outside of the dialogues to do so before regrouping on the next step of the Letsema Process together.

What we did

Convene engagements with the Religious Leaders and Pastor's Forum in Rustenburg. 

What was learned

The leaders embrace the Letsema Process, which was deeply ingrained in their culture. They feel it embodies the essence of Ubuntu and collaboration, fostering a strong sense of communal support and togetherness.

Outcome

The quality of discussions proved to be highly thought-provoking and made a significant impression, prompting the pastors to extend the invitation to a broader audience by inviting parishioners from each of their churches to ReimagineSA's next engagement with them.
