How Statelessness in South Africa affects access to Education
The main focus on the unique challenges faced by the community members who lack official citizenship or nationality in a area that shares its border with both South Africa and Lesotho.
Community members raised concerns about the challenges of undocumented children who are unable to attend school or access essential benefits due to their lack of citizenship. This concern highlighted the far-reaching consequences of statelessness, affecting access to education.
Home Affairs Department official Mr Moloi allowed for a direct engagement on potential solutions to the problems raised and further called on members of the community to visit the Home Affairs offices in order to receive further assistance.
