In 2018, SociGO was established as a non-profit company to uplift and empower the Deaf community through events, workshops, and festivals that share their culture and language.
Current international research indicates that events, workshops, and presentations to enhance and empower various life skills significantly improve Deaf children, youth and adults’ success in personal lives.
Therefore, our mission is to increase awareness of Deaf culture, identity and sign language through performing arts, music, sport, and visual arts for all people of all ages in South Africa.
We also aim to enhance awareness and knowledge among those in the Deaf community through educational programmes and workshops necessary to prepare and empower the Deaf community for leadership in their communities and success in their personal lives.
Our activities include but are not limited to:
We envisage that the Deaf community and those with differing abilities in South Africa will have full access to all community activities regardless of race, creed, gender or abilities.
We support lifelong learning through various activities by striving to:
We deliver festivals for people of all ages. These festivals include: literacy, culture, food as well as kids camp festivals.
SociGO teams are and carry the building blocks of SociGO. We have an amazing team that volunteers their time and passion to make SociGO successful. Various skills and talents will come together to make the dreams of deaf people come true. We cannot work without our volunteer teams.
IT Support & Maintenance
SociGO is an empowering team. We aim to empower people to have the perfect opportunity to showcase their skills in planning any event.
SociGO would like to provide an opportunity for every volunteer to be part of the various projects that we have. These can take place in different provinces, and they will get recognition for their skills, whether it be planning, hosting, finding artists and performers, etc. and anything else they can to make our events successful.
Once this project is complete, a new team is formed so other people can be part of the team, so we can share skills between all the people who are part of this project. If you are interested, please send us an email and state what your skills are and how you think you can help SociGO. Every volunteer will be given an opportunity to go for leadership training, so that they can have the chance to take the lead on a specific responsibility.
If you are interested in volunteering, please get in touch with us. Email us SociGO.
