2016: A year providing challenges and opportunities
The weakening rand, nationwide drought, dwindling food security, rising interest rates, higher inflation, crime, retrenchments and unemployment: the newspapers are dominated by these and other challenges confronting all South Africans, particularly in 2016. It is enough to cause despair among everyone.
However, Solidarity believes that challenges create opportunities. We also believe that the necessary willpower and motivation will enable you to overcome all challenges. It is, of course, also important to be informed and not to allow misconceptions to cloud your thoughts and actions.
Solidarity therefore launched a campaign, “Survive 2016”, to provide its members with the necessary support, advice and information so that they will be able to deal with the many challenges facing them this year. This not only involves the distribution of informative articles with helpful hints; it also provides a platform for our members and supporters where they can support one another. In addition, members of the public will be able to pose questions about finances and the economy directly to Solidarity’s own experts.
The aim of the campaign is twofold: In the first instance it provides information to members and supporters on how to protect their well-being, family and finances against the onslaughts of 2016. Secondly, it creates awareness among the general public about issues that might threaten the prosperity of all South Africans in 2016, thereby calling the government to account.
Let’s tackle 2016 and its challenges together!
Can you provide any advice or tips that could minimise the impact of the above-mentioned challenges facing us in 2016? Share it here.
Drought , become aware
As the drought is tightening its grip, Solidarity is launching an awareness campaign among South Africans. This drought may have numerous consequences affecting not only the farmers, but all South Africans. Therefore it is important to recognise the extent of the drought. Currently three photographers are photographing regions in South Africa in order to document the drought.
