Description

The Soul City Institute for Social Justice, an organisation not for gain, is proud to be considered one of the world’s most influential social justice organisations. To this end, we’re chiefly focused on changing norms and structural issues for attainment of social justice, particularly for young women.

Origins

Established in 1992, when South Africa was on the brink of democratic change, Soul City Institute for Social Justice has remained a health promotion organisation, subscribing to the principles of the World Health Organisation’s Ottawa Charter. According to the charter, health is a product of a range of actions that include building an enabling environment, advocacy for healthy public policy, community action, developing personal skills and re-orientating health services towards the health promotion approach.
