South Africa is located at the southern tip of Africa. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the west, the Indian Ocean on the south and east. Along its northern border, from west to east, are Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe, and to the northeast is Mozambique and Swaziland.

In South Africa, REFLECT is being used in an extremely diverse range of contexts across the country to address several challenges. For example, two organisations– SHARE and the Family Literacy Project (FLP) have adapted REFLECT to work with pre-school children and parents/teachers in order to give children opportunities to have a ‘good start in life.

The overall aim of the network is to introduce and expand the Reflect approach in South Africa to increase literacy levels and other communication skills closely linked to engagement of people in wider processes and development, poverty alleviation and social change.

IDASA uses REFLECT primarily with youth to influence local government decision making processes. These two organisations have provided
useful lessons on how REFLECT can move beyond the time and resource
limitations set by the framework of project interventions. This case study presents an overview of these two organisations.
In 2004, representatives from Southern Africa gathered to form the Pamoja South Africa Reflect Network (PASARNET).There are 7 NGOs and CBOs in South Africa that use the reflect methodology to support community development and capacity building.
