We invite fellow South Africans to join Rev. Deon and his crew led by Ms Charmaine Mahlagaume, to support them by welcoming them with songs and dance as they pass through a town near you and be part of the Let’s Reconcile Project.
Beginet designed the Let’s Reconcile Cycle Tour to achieve the following:
- The first objective of Let’s Reconcile Cycle Tour is to raise awareness of the Let’s Reconcile Project which will be launched in 2020 to promote social cohesion and nation-building by educating South Africans on the benefits and importance of unity.
- The second objective of Let’s Reconcile Cycle Tour is to raise funds to develop strong partnerships with communities around the country, government agencies, funding agencies, corporate organisations and like-minded civil society organisations to implement the Let’s Reconcile project across all the nine provinces of our rainbow nation, South Africa.
We believe in the wise words of Nobel Laureate the Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who said, “True reconciliation is never cheap, for it is based on forgiveness which is costly. Forgiveness, in turn, depends on repentance, which has to be based on an acknowledgement of what was done wrong, and therefore on disclosure of the truth. You cannot forgive what you do not know”.
About Beginet: We are a South African based nonprofit organisation that uses the power of media to develop and disseminate quality family-centered education and support based on our Family Stability model.
We invite all South Africans wishing to partner with us as individuals, families, communities or organisations in nation-building to go to:
