Dear SLF members, supporters, followers and others,
Welcome to our quarterly newsletter! Because this is the spring edition, we decided to take spring-cleaning to heart and spruce up the look of the newsletter. We hope you enjoy this new format.
Of course, we've been up to a lot more than just freshening up - here is a review of some of the work we have been up to:
The Heart of the Matter project, which brought together Delft community members and cardiovascular disease researchers, drew to a fun and vibrant close at a community-led event this month. The Participatory Monitoring and Accountability project working on community safety has gone through a meaningful process and is coming to a close with engagement events scheduled for November. Our project working with youth to voice their experiences of leisure and specifically alcohol consumption in townships, YOLO eKasi, is also coming to a close with an exhibition of the work produced by the youth in their photovoice project. Also highlighted this quarter are the insightful digital stories which have been produced through the Making All Voices Count project, in partnership with rasta bushdoctors.
We are excited to announce that SLF director Andrew Hartnack launched his new book on welfare, power and land in Zimbabwe in September. And finally, we have started a new blog series titled 'Livelihood Struggles', based on our informality work, which will be continuing until December.
