The community capacity enhancement process - Serious Social Investing 2011

Published on

Presented during Tshikululu Social Investments' second annual Serious Social Investing workshop, which took place on 17 and 18 March 2011.

Mothomang Diaho (Head of dialogue programme: Nelson Mandela Foundation) believes that most companies and organisations have very
clear policies that spell out their commitment to community engagement and community development.
Unfortunately, the manner in which communities are
engaged and consulted have often lacked inclusiveness
and structure.

The risks associated with this are farreaching and specific methodologies should be used for the success of structured and strategic community engagements. Dr Diaho shows how.

  10. 10. Case Studies10
  11. 11. Case Study 1• Galeshewe (NC) conversations encourage mainly youth participation.• Young people have taken a lead and responsibility of making change in their communities (e.g. forming of task teams to mobilize community members and police to clean up and secure the public park)• This intervention reduces crimes and violent attacks towards mainly women & youth
  12. 12. Case Study 2There have been many things that have changed in this community. We really need to give credit to the community conversations facilitators for initiating a clinic committee….crime has also been raised and highlighted. I found out about (i) wunga (a drug mixed with ARVs) in these conversations. The learners told us about it and how people get it. The focus on crime has been so integral in this community, because that’s what is affecting our community the most... [Mr Zithulele Ntuli, Concilor of KwaMakhutha Township, KZN]
  13. 13. Into the future For Anglo American, society is an inclusive concept. It embraces our workforce, the communities in which they live, the citizens of host countries and the implications of what we do for the wider population for generations to come.The communities where we operate are crucial to Anglo Americans success; they provide and house our employees, and are often a valuable part of our supply chain. At the same time, we are often vital to their growing prosperity. Mutual dependence makes it only natural that we want to make positive and enduring contributions to our hosts. Being a good neighbour is good business. Anglo American
