Annual Families Indaba 2023 Feedback

December 7, 2023

In October, SAPPIN successfully hosted its second annual Families Indaba. Delegates were immersed in action-oriented proposals aimed at tackling how best to support families to impact social change. 

Two days of deep conversation and networking brought about several key initiatives for SAPPIN to focus on in 2024. These include:

  • a collaborative funding proposal led by SAPPIN to enhance the organisation and its resources.
  • frameworks for sharing best practices while maintaining program fidelity.
  • strategic partnerships aimed at fostering holistic family well-being within communities.
  • an upcoming Fatherhood Community of Practice workshop to be hosted by SAPPIN in March 2024.

The Indaba also called for a reconceptualization of social change, seeking to empower parents and communities as the primary agents of positive transformation. Prevention and early intervention, especially within the first 1000 days of a child's life, were emphasised as a critical space for impactful work.
