Latest Commission Update: The commission of inquiry into allegations of police inefficiency in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, has been restarted and hearings will commence in March. Read more here.
The budget materials, which comprise three double-sided fact sheets and a booklet, are the product of an NU Budget Literacy Workshop Series conducted from March to May 2012 with participants from various Cape Town-based social justice organisations. The materials aim to impart activists with an understanding of how budgeting works at the three spheres of government and how communities can use budget work as a powerful tool for advocacy.
“Ndifuna Ukwazi (Dare to Know) is more than a slogan of the Enlightenment. Our everyday struggle for political, social and economic freedom and equality must be based on principle, evidence, desire to know and action. The desire to know requires courage, patience and persistence because freedom, dignity and equality depend on it.” - Zackie Achmat, Director of Ndifuna Ukwazi
