Welcome to the South African Women in Dialogue website
"We are the ones we've been waiting for"
"We, the women of South Africa, stand together for women's participation on issues of national, regional, continental and international importance. Through our dialogues, we seek to establish a common agenda for the development of women and to ensure that women's views are taken into consideration whenever decisions are taken on all issues that impact on our lives..."
The SAWID forum was initiated to provide a platform for ongoing dialogue.
Our website is undergoing redevelopment.

The Auxilliary Social Worker programme
SAWID adopts psycho-social models that attempt to reduce dependency on others for sustenance and livelihoods, overcome feelings of shock, fear and helplessness, focus on options, implications and potential outcomes and seek to address immediate individual needs. To achieve this, SAWID's intervention applies direct human interventions by training key individuals in psycho-social approaches and assigning them to individual families to facilitate the household intervention, thus strengthening the resilience, thinking and problem-solving skills that the families need to survive and graduate from poverty.
