Open Channels works with dispossessed communities to define their lands, resources and rights, and to secure a just place in today’s world.
Since 1997 we have focused on working with the San peoples in southern Africa to help secure their rights to their lands, heritage and economic security.
With funding from Comic Relief, we support San organizations and their members to achieve a sustainable and rewarding way of life on their own lands after generations of dispossession and disinheritance.
The map shown here is part of the extensive documentation of San relationships to land and resources that was used to help establish San rights to land in the southern Kalahari.
