Join Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu - sign the APD Pledge & help Heal Our Rainbow Nation

The Healing Our Rainbow Nation Campaign affords every South African the opportunity to publicly declare their opposition to any form of prejudice and discrimination.

With the turbulence our country is currently experiencing – economic, social and political – this campaign comes at the perfect time. We need to unite as a nation to once again experience the joy and elation of 1994 when we first became a democracy. It is time to turn the country back to what was felt when Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu first referred to South Africa as the Rainbow Nation.

Hey Guys!
Look at how we
are helping our
Rainbow Nation

“I proudly put my name to this pledge that unites against prejudice and discrimination. I challenge every South African to do the same. Each of us is a unique creation of God. Each of us has a special purpose from God. Those of you who despise and harm others because of their differences work against God. They do not represent me. They should not represent you. We must unite in trust and love and heal our Rainbow Nation.”

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu


The campaign is being organized by the Association for the Physically Disabled (APD) – Greater Johannesburg – who for more than 70 years, has been dealing with the discrimination that people with disabilities experience and by Barrier Breakers, a division of the APD, which focuses on breaking down barriers between people with disabilities and able-bodied South Africans.
