Ubumbano Voice Project
The Ubumbano Community Voice project is a digital platform for community activists in Southern Africa to share stories of their struggles for dignity and justice. It encourages activists to write about their experiences, and helps to amplify the voices of those often not heard in society. The platform hopes to challenge mainstream narratives that often speak on behalf of communities.
Earlier this month we hosted 15 people who have been facilitating the rollout of this Voice project in Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Eswatini and South Africa to share experiences and think through strategies to scale up this work. We all made commitments to spread the reach, to involve more people in writing and telling their stories, and to find innovative ways to get the messages out.
