ZA DIFFERENCE objectives:
To provide income-generating opportunities to unskilled, unemployed, marginalised South Africans. (If you would like to sell or facilitate the selling of the magazine, click here.)
- To give voice to the voiceless. (Contact us if you would like to organise a ‘listening session’ in your community. If you would like to submit editorial content, click here.)
- To make practical, solutions-based information available, in print, to the roughly 90% of our population that does not have meaningful, sustained access to the Internet where most of this information is available.
- To promote the efforts of all who are working towards the common good in our country. (Click here to get your organisation listed.)
- To bridge the divide between black and white, rich and poor, marginalised and mainstream society, and between the many different cultures of our rainbow nation. (Click here to find out more about our rainbow audience.)
- To create opportunities to learn and gain practical experience to students, unemployed graduates and aspirant writers and photographers. (Interns: Click here to apply. Volunteers: Click here to apply.)

to ensure that the full benefit of this project reaches all of South Africa.
ZA DIFFERENCE is a practical, how-to catalogue about sidestepping poverty, fostering job creation, entrepreneurship, dialogue on social issues, and societal learning on many levels. While its primary buying audience is affluent, the magazine is read by literate South Africans from all walks of life. Unlike the fate of unsold copies of most other periodicals, ZA Difference is not pulped, but re-distributed, free of charge, to isolated rural areas and disadvantaged urban communities throughout South Africa — the information it carries does not date.
"This magazine is about bringing people together,
learning from one another what it means to be human and helping one another
find a place in this world. It tackles very pressing issues such as poverty,
unemployment, family fragmentation and most of all human dignity.
The magazine has a great potential to create employment
and to lead many
out of a life of indignity as well as low self-esteem."
You are invited to rummage around ... and to join the conversation.
