I am because you are. I can be me only if you are fully you, for we are all made for togetherness…I have gifts that you don’t have, and you have gifts that I don’t have. We are different in order to know our need of each other. We are made for complementarity. – Desmond Tutu.

Three South African Universities:

University of the Free State Bloemfontein, University of the Western Cape and Stellenbosch University.

This research project is initiated by Professor Pumla Gobodo- Madikizela, a leading scholar in trauma, forgiveness and reconciliation studies and former servant on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa.
