Democracy Works Academy

The Democracy Works Academy (DW Academy) will train and develop a diverse range of young leaders, predominantly from rural communities, predominantly women, assisting them and their organisations to combat corruption and build an accountable democratic culture within the country.

“DWF believes this initiative will contribute to the necessary process of rebuilding a resilient democracy and good governance in South Africa, at a time in which it is sorely needed,” says Executive Director Olmo von Meijenfeldt. “The DW Academy will help build awareness of the role that citizens play in developing a transparent and accountable society and the critical skills to ensure such a society.”
