Organisation Of Civic Rights
South Africa | Community/Family
Committed to developing a better and just society by making a significant and distinctive contribution at regional, provincial and national levels through active grassroots involvement in improving the condition of tenants and the homeless community, and the safety, security and health of residents.
The OCR is a community organisation formed in 1984 and is involved in tenants rights, homeless, inner city redevelopment, anti-crime & other community issues, social facilitation. 25 years later, the OCR continues to work with the disadvantaged, the elderly, the poor and those suffering as a result of unjust socio-economic conditions and laws. We provide a nation-wide service to tenants, while conducting workshops nation-wide to empower and educate them. We run internship programmes with students from tertiary institutions, and provide placement for local and overseas post-graduate students.
