IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Democracy Works Foundation Johannesburg Office Closes

To protect our employees as COVID-19 continues to spread globally, Democracy Works Foundation has decided to close our regional head office in Johannesburg from 17 March 2020 until further notice. This is in line with the measures taken by the South African Government as announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa on 15 March 2020 and the Ministerial announcements on 16 March 2020. While the safety of our staff is of utmost importance, it remains business as usual for Democracy Works Foundation with Johannesburg staff operating remotely. South Africa is the most affected of the areas in which we work and therefore our regional offices in Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Zambia, and eSwatini will remain open. We will update you should we need to close any further offices. Democracy Works Foundation continues to follow expert advice as we adapt to changing circumstances, as ensuring the well-being of our staff is our highest priority.

If you have any enquiries, please contact us at or call us on (010) 023 0835.
