Tekano hosts its first Imbawula and you are welcome to join.

On Friday the 16th of April 2021 at 7pm, the Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity based at Tekano will be hosting its first ever Imbawula, and the event promises to be an intimate evening for all.

An Imbawula is a storytelling event in various African cultures which often takes place amongst a community at an evening fire.


Join us for an evening of enchanting stories from our Lifelong Fellows whose experiences have shaped their view of the world. The Imbawula is a celebration of who our Fellows are, and the work they do. The Lifelong Fellows who will be sharing their stories are Ntebaleng Morake, Patrick Mdletshe and Thami Hukwe. Their stories will make you think, laugh and will open your eyes to the experiences that our Fellows have lived through as proponents for Health Equity in South Africa.

The host for the evening is the Chief Executive at Tekano, Ms. Lebogang Ramafoko, a well versed storyteller, often sharing stories with anyone with ears to listen. The event is one that is dear to Ms. Ramafoko because she believes in order to build community, we need to share the stories that have impacted the way navigate through the world – especially as activists.

The evening promises to be an entertaining one, with shared stories and live music. The event will be held virtually, and guests are expected to register to receive the link. The registration for the event can be found here. An email will be sent to guests before the commencement of the event with the joining link. To join the conversation, use the hashtag #TekanoImbawula to interact with us.
