A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Welcome to DSAfrica.
Democratic Socialists of Africa is a South African non-profit advocacy foundation created to empower marginalized minorities economically and to advocate for socioeconomic justice and human rights philanthropy. The DSA supports and sustains the growth of other organizations and enterprises within communities across South Africa. Essentially, the DSA aims to establish a prescence in each municipality of South Africa. Every community-driven structure helps to nurture and support NPCs, NPOs, NGOs, Cooperatives, Trusts and Companies in their respective industries, sectors and geographic regions. We encourage the growth of new NGOs, and businesses among all of our members and we assist our members every step of the way! Our organization strives toward the development of self-supporting communities with programs that increase income and enhance other opportunities as a collective strategy to create economic self-sufficiency for marginalized societies.

"DSA is very serious about issues related to Food Security, Self-Sovereignty, Self Determination and Climate Changeā€

Climate change is expected to have unprecedented implications on where people can settle, grow food, build cities, and rely on functioning ecosystems for the services they provide. In many places, temperature changes and sea-level rise are already putting ecosystems under stress and affecting human well-being.

CLIMATE AND ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

Affordable, clean energy, water and sanitation. Protecting ecosystems and advocating for climate justice.

GROWING AND PROTECTING THE SOLIDARITY ECONOMY

Building resilient community-driven and worker-owned businesses through the development and nurturing of cooperative enterprise.

MARKET-GEARED EDUCATION AND SKILLS

Settling for no less than best quality education for children, scholars, students and neglected communities.

EMPLOYMENT AND JOB-CREATION

Creating equitable and decent employment opportunities. Utilizing intelligent software solutions to lead the ideal candidate to their intended career objectives.

COOPERATIVE HOUSING SOLUTIONS

Building community-managed cities, towns and infrastructure by strategically remodelling industries and market structures towards a self-sufficient circular economy.

RESPONSIBLE, PEOPLE-CENTERED MARKET ECONOMICS

Sustainable Production, distribution and consumption. Promoting a balanced culture of social-enterprise through economic activism.

COOPERATIVE HEALTH CARE

Affordable cooperative healthcare initiatives towards good health, community well-being and dignity. We believe that quality and accessible healthcare services are a basic human right.

GENDER EQUALITY

Gender equality prevents violence against women and girls. It's essential for economic prosperity. Societies that value women and men as equal are safer and healthier. Gender equality is a human right.

RELIEF OF DISTRESS

We understand the challenges our members are facing and are determined to be by their side when it comes to keeping their organizations and enterprises fully operational during difficult times.

Issues & Plans.
DSA is a foundation with a multi-issue agenda centered primarily upon the economic empowerment of poorer communities and is comprised of many single-issue causes, movements, organizations, foundations and trusts. All of our development initiatives and campaigns are brought to life in association with formalized community-run local committees and legal entities. Our distributed management approach allows the various local development teams to build their projects based upon the actual needs of the people who live within their communities. We gain strength in the knowledge that we are an organization comprised mainly of women and youth who have taken the initiative to come together to form an organization which will bring visible positive change to the socioeconomic circumstances of all the people in our communities.
