Under the able stewardship of Diane Singer and Claire Jankelson, the first Sydney South African Film Festival burst onto the scene in 2019 to great acclaim. 

The inaugural Sydney South African Film Festival was a way of showcasing the South African cinema to audiences in Sydney while raising funds for a worthy cause. 

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we have made the films available virtually, so you can see the films from the comfort of your own home!


Beginning in early 2020, Education without Borders (assisted by Guy Cohen and Nathan Paul) started a Surf Clinic (SurfWithoutBorders) which will took selected students/learners of EwB programs surfing on the weekends.

The Surf Clinic provides children with an opportunity to experience something new, have fun, learn about the ocean and is also an outlet from the poverty and crime in the townships. This program will continue after the Covid 19 pandemic is over.

What a celebration of 25 years of democracy in South Africa!

Mayibuye (Mah-yee-boo-yeh) iAfrika is a Zulu slogan from the liberation struggle in South Africa. It means Bring Back Africa, a call for independence, diversity and justice.
