The Education and Human Resources Development for a New, Non-Racial and Democratic South Africa
The Education and Human Resources Development for a New, Non-Racial and Democratic South Africa.
The international community has long recognized the need to provide educational assistance to the victims of apartheid. Major efforts have, in the past, been directed towards granting assistance for training abroad to South Africans who have suffered from repression. However, recent political developments that have given rise to cautious optimism for a new, non-racial democratic South Africa have brought to the fore the urgency and dimension of the education crisis in South Africa and made it possible to channel assistance towards the disadvantaged inside the country-the marginalized youth, the "lost" generation, Black civil servants, teachers, trainers, entrepreneurs, managers, women, to name a few. The empowerment ofthese citizens through education and training is indispensable to a stable and viable new South Africa.
