Afrophobia

The Sophie A Kanza Foundation created a campaign for Africa Day speaking out against Afrophobia in South Africa, the youth bravely told us their story!

 

The Sophie A Kanza Foundation is a non-profit and was created to empower and unite woman from all over the African continent. Sophie and Louise are sisters who’ve faced some tough times together and with the help of others they were able to get out on top.

They were so grateful to everyone that helped, they decided to pay the good deeds forward and created the foundation to do so.

As part of their new Campaign to raise awareness about Afrophobia they filmed a short film interviewing various African Nationals.

“On the 5th of February 2017, a series of nationwide Afrophobic attacks was ignited by the burning of Rosettenville House”

“This film was shot in the house that ignited riots”

The foundation aims to bring youth together because it is important for youth to know that they can make a difference, regardless of their nationality, race, creed or financial status.

“Many of us feel no concrete connection to our countries of birth but are also continuously reminded that we are not South African”
