Cape Town – South African History Online (Saho) has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Thundafund to help fund the redesign of its website.
As the premier people’s history website with a mandate to write South Africa’s and Africa’s history, the Saho redesign will go towards helping the public access information more easily on PCs, tablets and cellphones.
A Section 21 non-profit organisation, Saho was established in 2000 to address the way South Africa and Africa’s history and heritage was documented.
The organisation has committed to promoting education, democracy, non-racialism and the building of just societies.
Saho founder, chief executive, and an award-winning artist and photographer who played an active role in the liberation Struggle, Omar Badsha, said: “We pioneered archiving information on the internet, and this project is more than just information, but provides online classrooms and exhibitions.
