The Constitution Hill Trust was established in May 2006 to promote respect for the South African Constitution, human rights, and democracy.
We strive to inspire a proud, knowledgeable and creative people by making the Constitution and its history accessible to all; to promote informed dialogues about our past, present and future; and to encourage people to take greater action towards building trust in our constitutional democracy.
We also strive to animate the Constitution to help bridge the gap between its values and ideals and our lived reality. Having entered into a new decade, we wish to reaffirm and reignite the passion for our constitutional values.
To secure the preservation and development of Constitution Hill as a heritage site symbolising South Africa’s constitutional democracy.
To educate South Africans and promote respect for constitutionalism, human rights and democracy.
To inspire the world with the lessons that can be learnt from South Africa’s transition from apartheid to democracy.
BUILD TRUST IN CONSTITUTIONALISM. PRESERVE OUR HISTORY. EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE.
