Engaging: Community engagement for sustainable development

Leaving a lasting legacy in the local community.

As an institution of higher learning, knowledge is our currency as we give back to the communities that have hosted and partnered with Wits in the region over the years.

Complementing the community engagement activities of individual research programmes, WiRKH leads participatory and service-oriented engagement with local communities around sustainable development.


• Linking Wits service-learning programmes with local communities and service providers
• Arranging knowledge-sharing workshops and presentations in local schools, CBO’s, NGO’s, and other fora
• Securing ring-fenced Wits bursaries for university applicants from Bushbuckridge
• Linking local NGO’s and CBO’s with potential donors

Please consider giving to these local worthy causes, or contact us for philanthropic ideas:
