African Centre for Citizens Orientation

Acts & Reports

Democracies depend upon citizens who, among other things, are:

• aware of their rights and responsibilities as citizens;
• informed about the social and political world;
• concerned about the welfare of others;
• articulate in their opinions and arguments;
• capable of having an influence on the world;
• active in their communities;
• responsible in how they act as citizens.

These capacities do not develop unaided. They have to be learnt. While a certain amount of citizenship may be picked up through ordinary experience in the home or at work, it can never in itself be sufficient to equip citizens for the sort of active role required of them in today's complex and diverse society.
