Notre Dame Students Fight Xenophobia in South Africa



University of Notre Dame faculty, students and alumni, Kgosi Neighbourhood Foundation (KNF), and Pellegrino Collaborative have joined forces to develop together+, a multi-faceted campaign to unite a South African community divided by xenophobia, and empower its most marginalized citizens. Through on-the-ground design research and analysis, the team is finding opportunities for design to actively change xenophobic beliefs and perceptions.


The primary intervention is together +, an educational and awareness campaign, which includes a curriculum-based children’s story with a core message of strength and unity through diversity, and a visual identity that fluidly communicates across South African language barriers.
