RELATE | REFORM | RESTORE
3rd Bridge-building Summit 24 October - Paarl
In a country divided by racism, economic exclusion, and social intolerance, we need to construct more trusted social bridges. An essential ingredient to healthy families, unified communities, national cohesion, and sustainable businesses are reciprocal respectful relationships. Relationships, unfortunately, are also one of the first casualties when everyone is fighting for personal survival. Although crime, corruption, and unethical practise are immensely painful, it is also an equaliser. Broken trust does not only occur in cross-cultural relationships, but it also happens between neighbours, life-long partners, and even within one’s family.
The high instances of crime and farm attacks are forcing us to re-evaluate our responsibility to reach out to our neighbours, and people who are living nearby. The crime and struggling economy is forcing us out of the comfortable mono-cultures of friends-on-Facebook type connections into getting to know and engage with the people living next door. The only way to survive economic and social degradation is when people begin to take hands, earn one another’s trust, and build collective good-will – i.e. the social cohesion sought as an aim in the NDP.
