Question and answer
Communiy that are involved in supporting or giving redress to xenophobia
The NMF promotes the principles of its founder and namesake, South Africa's first black president and a champion of reconciliation and non-violence. [ The 90-year-old Mandela has retired from the helm, but his foundation continues to promote and facilitate dialogue. Its focus this year is on xenophobia and the organization has launched up a two-year strategy to help promote peaceful co-existence between South Africans and foreigners and to look at the root causes of last year's violence. The NMF has invited UNHCR, which has long opposed xenophobic behaviour in South Africa, to sit on its
steering committee and help implement the plan. UNHCR will also provide financial and technical support. The Foundation has also consulted with government institutions and other human rights organizations. Achmat Dangor, chief executive of the Foundation, set the tone for the anti-xenophobia campaign when he addressed a recent NFM meeting on the issue with partners. "Individuals of Mandela's stature did not change the world on their own. Mandela's entire life has been based upon dialogue, the art of listening to others and getting others to listen and speak to each other." South Africa has been too slow in the past to use dialogue to tackle xenophobia, but NMF hopes to help redress the situation by facilitating and encouraging meaningful conversations between all relevant stakeholders. ]
