Initially part of IDASA (the Institute for Democracy in South Africa) AU became an autonomous, registered organisation in 2004.

Underpinned by its organisation slogan, “Building Human Rights communities” AU programmatic focus is on building the knowledge and skills of Human Rights Peer Educators, facilitating reciprocal learning exchanges with community-based and migrant led structures, and creating a platform for intercultural exchange and dialogue between local, refugee and migrant communities in South Africa. Towards the fulfillment of these goals, AU has consistently sought to build partnerships with likeminded organizations committed to using rights based participatory strategies as a means of building peaceful, sustainable communities

    First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and
    clear your mind before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!
