Faith-based organisations

A number of faith-based organisations (FBOs) played an influential role in the struggle against apartheid, but since the advent of democracy, they have, with notable exceptions, been less visible agents for social change, despite continuing to provide relief for the poor.

There is no doubt that faith has great transformative power, yet it is not always easy to see how this can be harnessed to help change society. A collection of diverse faith-based organisations; Common Ground Church and Common Good Foundation, Claremont Main Road Mosque, Dutch Reformed and United Reformed Church, Temple Israel, Mench and JL Zwane Church Centre and the Zwane Presbyterian Church share how they are mobilising their members to bring about broader social change.
