The HBF has been actively promoting the consolidation of democracy and human rights, advancing gender equality, and taking action to prevent the destruction of the environment in Southern Africa since 1989. For many organisations and individuals the Foundation has become a reliable funding partner, a space for constructive dialogue and an international network. It also provides analyses of contemporary political events in the region. The Foundations’ work in Southern Africa consists of four programmes: Democracy & Social Justice, Human Rights & Gender Justice, Sustainable Development and International Politics & Dialogue.
