Our work is to promote the use of South African indigenous languages. We collaborate with academics, activists, business or practitioners from any field or sphere that elevates, develops or promotes indigenous languages. We regret that we are not in a position to fund indigenous language projects. We do accept funding from parties that wish to support our work.
