Objectives of the Foundation

 

In pursuing its core objective of deepening non-racialism, the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation will:

 

  • Promote the values, rights and principles enshrined in the Freedom Charter and the Constitution of the Republic
    of South Africa;

    role in South Africa's liberation struggle and its relation to the role of other individuals, groups and
    movements both nationally and internationally;
     
  • Establish a research and documentation centre that will provide selective historical and contemporary
    documentation and archival material on liberation history in South Africa, and to make this available for
    academic and scholarly research;
     
  • Organise seminars, lectures, debates and discussions and undertake research on issues which promote a
    non-racial, non-sexist and democratic South Africa;
     
  • Identify and support projects and programmes that will deepen non-racialism and create an equitable
    society;
     
  • Build and maintain a centre that will carry out all of the activities and programmes of the Foundation.
