LUKHANYO VANI

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Politics and International Relations from the University of the Witwatersrand., Johannesburg. I am currently doing my LLB at Wits. I believe that I have a moral duty to help people in need. It is partly because of this reason that I find myself always moved to human rights activism. I founded and led a registered non-profit organisation called Khayalenkanysio (‘House of light’), a community project which started as an outreach programme; we collected sanitary towels, and clothes for the disadvantaged people of Soweto. I am member of Students for Law and Social Justice (SLJS). I used to be a lead tutor on tutorials which we offered in SLJS at previously disadvantaged schools around Johannesburg. I am presently the Grievances Officer of the Law Students Council (LSC). I also occasionally captain for WCCO on the Masidlene programme.
