Joe Katsande is an acclaimed Author, Educator and Entrepreneur. He is a strong advocate for the advancement of education and human rights, particularly the rights of children. Joe firmly believes human rights education (and indeed education in general) is a tremendous empowerment tool to equip children and communities to be more aware of their rights and implement them in their respective circumstances and ensure that the rights of all children are fully realized. This in turn will help to significantly reduce sexual abuse and rape in our communities, which is one of the key purposes of Justice For The Silenced. A child deprived of education is one of the most vulnerable children in the world. Joe Katsande reaffirms JFTS`s notion that educating a child is the first step towards them becoming independent and taking ownership of their life. Education is and always will be an essential part in building a strong foundation in one’s life. It is also JFTS`S purpose to help children develop their identity and be contributing factors to society by providing educational support to less privileged children.
Joe will be writing articles fortnightly which will be published on the JFTS website and all its sites on social media. The articles will empower both adults and children to take action and to advocate for human rights (particularly child rights) and education.
