Doing something for SA Minorities

07 May 2012, 20:45
After years of reading about how policy and legislation in South Africa is costing potential students, employees and business owners in South Africa, simply because they happen to belong to minorities, myself and a couple of friends have decided to try and do something about it.

It's abundantly clear that BEE, AA and other policies that are designed to limit minorities opportunities in South Africa aren't going anywhere, so if we want to do anything, we have to do it by ourselves, for ourselves.

SA Minorities is the idea we've come up with.

Initially, the website - www.saminorities.org - is being developed to provide information on minority rights locally and globally, but eventually, we plan to register an NPO, and start a bursary and small business fund.

Coloured, Indian, white and other minority race and culture groups in South Africa also deserve access to opportunities in business and education, and hopefully, if we all work together, we can make those opportunities a reality - without having to change any laws.

We, the minorities in South Africa, make up about 20% of the population, and we're all a part of the 'rainbow nation.' Let's claim our piece of the rainbow by uplifting people with skills, ideas and potential, together.
