Please take a moment of your time to learn about the Radical Reconciliation Project.
Bright World introduces a project created and developed by Human Rights Masters student, Natalie Armitage which aims to challenge social divisions between race and class worldwide. Natalie has set herself the enormous task of raising £2,800 in just 60 days. A target that once achieved will allow her to travel to The Institute for Justice and Reconciliation in Cape Town where she can begin carrying out her research and impact the continuing effort to close racial divides in South Africa.
So what is so important about this research?
The research which Natalie aims to carry out covers an issue that isn’t just true for the situation in South Africa, but for countries across the world where division across racial boundaries still exists. Natalie is currently in the process of raising funds which will allow her to complete her placement.
How can you help?
