Indlebe Hearings, Healing of Memories and Reconciliation

Indlebe Hearings, Healing of Memories and Reconciliation (HoMaR) Programme

The KZNCC leads and strengthens a network of organisations whose aim is to mobilise affected communities in the province to address the problem of accumulated pain and “multiple woundedness” resulting from many years of apartheid injustice, political and xenophobic violence, violent protests, widespread criminal killings, the trauma of HIV and AIDS and gender-based violence. Political and economic development are hindered by this pain which paralyses many thousands of people in this province who could make a significant contribution to their own lives and those of others.

Emphases:

  • Building the capacity of participating partners to promote healing of memories and reconciliation through various methods;
  • Establishing networks and partnerships with other stakeholders working on these issues;
  • Conducting research on key issues around healing of memories and reconciliation such as justice, peace and social harmony;
  • Promoting mediation, conflict resolution and peace-building at individual/personal level, family level and local communities.
