The Tekano journey is more than one story.
It is a new journey for all of us – rich and complex with many influences. There are many role players – individuals, groups, professions, even whole communities
– each adding to the range of perspectives, challenges and contributions. The questions are many – and the solutions just as diverse. So how are we to share it with you in a few pages?
In trying to answer What is Tekano? and What is the work that we do? we realised that the answer was rich and complex so we have attempted to answer it in a series of stories. We hope that this will give you a more nuanced perspective of the organisation and of its unfolding.

What our fellows
have to say
In my activism work I became aware of the psychological trauma that abducted girls and women have to live with for the rest of their lives if they are not supported. This level of awareness needs to be put into action, by conscientising other stakeholders.
I am passionate about training environmental health practitioners, building their capacity to be aware of factors in the environment that affect health such that prevention of ill health and injury plays a key role in their thinking and, invariably, in the work that they do.
My activist vigour is focused towards building a South Africa where Alma Ata (primary health care) takes centre stage and the underprivileged South Africans have access to affordable, quality healthcare regardless of class, employment, gender, origin, or ability to pay.
