Label: Purpose & Activities

The University of Johannesburg Humanitarian Movement believes they can make a difference, one life at a time. They have taken the Preamble, Purpose and Principles of URI and absorbed them into the ethos of promoting and protecting human rights that is already in the DNA of their UNASA parent body. The CC is made up of Muslim, Atheist and Christian members. The Christian members are Catholic, Anglican and Protestant. They believe that through interfaith work at the University Campus, they get to know each other and are exposed to each other’s different beliefs, which helps to build mutual respect. They care about humanity and they are happy that through URI they can work together to make a difference.  

They have major projects which they are looking forward to tackling within the next six months. These are as follows: A Winter Soup Kitchen program for the abandoned, homeless and needy, located in the Berea/Hillbrow area of Johannesburg. Old Age Home Day, which is a service to be rendered for an old age home in Soweto/Alexander. “The Talk: URI” is a project that is more of a get together where participants discuss and share views, thoughts and ideas around a topic. A get together is planned around the topic of Religion in Africa, Youth Empowerment Program and a Massive Women Empowerment Program. 

To change the way society treats its people by bridging gaps in communities
