Get involved

PACSA Membership Form

PACSA’s membership is open to:

  • Anyone who is committed to social justice and development and identifies with PACSA’s vision and mission.
  • Those who committed to social justice and would like to be part of a forum of like-minded people, learn from them and share insights, as well as becoming more involved in social justice advocacy activities in and around Pietermaritzburg.
  • While many of our members are Christians and we do grapple with the faith dimensions of PACSA’s work and social issues, being a person of faith is not a requirement of membership.

PACSA VISION: PACSA envisions and works towards a just society where all people are free, able to realize their potential and actively participate in their own development.

PACSA VALUES: PACSA operates out of Christian and human rights values, which are foundational to our work:

  • Justice;
  • Equity;
  • Human dignity;
  • Shared consciousness and collaborate action;
  • Relationships of trust;
Our mandate is derived from the weakest, most vulnerable in society – which is also where we locate our work;

Thus, PACSA identifies itself as a social justice and development organization in which our work and our practice seek to enhance human dignity.

PACSA is a registered NPO, and the activities of PACSA shall be for the benefit of or widely accessible to the general public at large.
