PACSA is a faith-based social justice and development NGO that has been in operation since 1979. PACSA operates in the uMgungundlovu region of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa and focusses on socio - economic rights, gender justice, youth development, livelihoods and HIV & Aids. Our work and our practice seek to enhance human dignity. We are convinced that those who carry the brunt of the problem must be a part of the solution - at the heart of PACSA’s core strategy is the notion “nothing about us without us.”

PACSA has two strategies:

Process Facilitation

Grassroots organisations act in their own names and are accompanied in their own advocacy and development.

We understand accompaniment as critical solidarity with those who suffer indignity; through this solidarity we strengthen each other as we construct a new world.
Through our core strategy of Process Facilitation we provide:
• Spaces in which to identify, develop and refine strategies.
• Assistance to organisations to identify their own developmental goals and take the necessary steps towards achieving them.
• Support to groups as they build their movement and their voice.
• Facilitation of useful linkages within the wider community.
• Specialist services, as and when required, including training, research and communication support among others.

Building Social Justice Activism

PACSA acts in its own name to build social justice activism in the broader society.

We reach out to the broader community to grow consciousness and support for justice issues. This is done by:
• Conducting research and advocacy to contribute to a world in which all can live with dignity.
• Disseminating information and communications
• Organising events to reach out to a broad public audience.
• Encouraging open dialogue.
• Networking with other organisations and churches at regional, national and global levels.


PACSA has a consultancy unit which offers specialist skills in order to mobilise resources to continue its work. We offer these services on a case by case basis to other NGOs, donor organisations or government departments, when their broad objectives complement PACSA’s goal of social justice and community driven development.
