donate to south africans in need

Two tragic events in our country, have left thousands of fellow South Africans stranded and in dire need of our help.

Let us come together in the spirit of Ubuntu to help.

It’s time to wrestle power away from political parties and give it back to the people!

It’s time we cut out political parties – the unnecessary middleman – and restore the intended direct relationship between communities and government through #DirectElections


Our innovative offer empowers independent candidates to stand for election in various wards, whilst also registering as a group of independent candidates to gain the benefit of the proportional representation (PR) vote. This model gives communities the power to take back control of their own destiny from political parties and install citizen-led governments in their municipalities.


It’s time for the government to be controlled by citizen-led organizations and competent individuals – citizens who are honest, equipped and passionate about delivering basic services in a financially prudent and responsible manner.

OSA endorsed independent candidates

This year, OSA will support a cohort of independent candidates, chosen by their communities to stand for election as ward councillors in this year’s Local Government Elections.


OSA’s focus will be on supporting, training, equipping and campaigning for OSA endorsed independents in wards and municipalities throughout the country. These will be independent candidates of their community, supported by the people, focused on delivering for the people. Those applying ought to espouse ethical leadership and be held in high esteem by members of their community.


To this end, we would like to invite submissions from activists and all South Africans recommending candidates that One South Africa might support.
