Disturbed or outraged at South Africa’s rising inequity? Concerned about its impact on health? Searching for inspired leadership for change? Then apply to be an Atlantic Fellow for Health Equity in South Africa.
Tekano is seeking applications for its fellowship programme to develop progressive leadership to tackle the deep social and economic inequities that characterise South Africa and impact on the health of our people.
Tekano, meaning “equality” in Sesotho, is a non-profit organisation established largely to drive the Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity in South Africa. This initiative could be funded for as long as 20 years by The Atlantic Philanthropies as part of their creation of an interconnected fellowship programme on five continents.
- Tekano seeks to recruit young and mid-career social change advocates, irrespective of citizenship, who are younger than 45 years of age and residing and working in South Africa.
- Tekano invites applications both from individuals and from groups of four to five people who are already working together on a health equity issue and are preferably working for different organisations.
- Applicants from diverse fields – education, healthcare, housing and urban planning, the arts and media, the law and human rights and other fields are encouraged to apply.
