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.
