To fan the flames of humanity and encourage resilience in communities through storytelling, advocacy and collaboration
Resilient and thriving communities
BWEF believes in shifting the power dynamic to enable the communities that we support to lead the process of change and take ownership of the outcomes. This shift in the relationship dynamic is essential for real empowerment and sustainability.The big picture
AT A GLANCE
Storytelling and advocacy in communities are both integral to Barloworld Empowerment Foundation’s mission. It is vital to unearth community assets and aspirations while putting a name and face to the change agenda.
The Foundation was established to improve the lives of mainly black women, youth and people with disabilities living in rural, peri-urban, and urban South Africa.BWEF at a glance
BWEF seeks to turn the traditional change model on its head by reframing the power dynamic in favour of change beneficiaries within the communities we serve, to empower them to play an active role in leading transformational change that results in sustainable impact that can stand the test of time and inspire for generations to come.Our strategy
HOW DO WE DO IT?
There are powerful stories and storytellers in every community.
We believe that these stories need to be heard. That they could lead us all to new perspectives and inspired action.Connect with us
