As usual, we bring you a magazine packed with information you can
use to improve your lives individually and as a country.
The focus of this edition is on the fabric of our society,
"social cohesion". Much has been said, including by President

between rich and poor; between people of different colours,
cultures and languages; between young and old; men and women. In
the pages of this magazine you will find issues that tell us how
we can create a society that has a better balance of resources
and how we can bring our different groups closer together.

An article on our Public Protector tells you that there is
someone you can go to if you have been unfairly treated or if
your human rights have been stepped upon.
There is advice on how to improve your skills or get new skills;
how you can use organic products we sometimes take for granted
and create business opportunities - like our amadumbe story; and
how you can join a stokvel to save enough to take your family on
Use this information to improve your lives, then pass it on to
