Our organization provides responsible information and research on the  Kalahari peoples for lawyers, students, volunteers and eco-travelers interested  in Southern Africa.  We also give talks and workshops at many national and  international venues to inform academia and the public about the current state  of the Kalahari peoples.   © Kalahari Peoples Fund 2010

Annually we will host  this event close to human rights  day (which is on 21st march). The  event will also be used as an  opportunity to promote various  rights issues, and because next  year is the  centenary of the 1913 Land Act in  South Africa, we will be focusing  on land and environmental issues For this first event, we would like  to incorporate musicians and  dancers from Namibia, Botswana  and Angola.
