giving the writer space to provide context,
and allowing the reader to truly understand a story in a way
that goes beyond headlines.

The Fish Hoek Valley, in Cape Town’s south peninsula, is a microcosm of the South African population, being home to a diversity of races, cultures and income groups, as well as a growing youth population. RTV is driven by the desire to encourage people to take responsibility for their neighbourhoods and to work at a grassroots level to build a strong community democracy, which can potentially be replicated in communities across South Africa.
A society in which communities are empowered to take responsibility for and bring about the positive changes they want to see in their own communities.
To build the necessary knowledge, skills, practices and relationships to support the emergence of a strong community democracy in the Fish Hoek Valley.
