SAHA in on the move

As an organisation, SAHA has in recent years outgrown our current office and archival storage space at Wits. After nearly two decades based in the Willian Cullen Library on Wits East Campus, SAHA has, in consultation with senior Wits staff and with the generous support of the Atlantic Philanthropies, made the decision to move to the Women's Jail at Constitution Hill.

This move represents an exciting stage in SAHA's development - as a heritage site steeped in history and housing South Africa's Constitutional Court, Constitution Hill offers a fitting environment for SAHA's work as an human rights archive with a focus on the intersection between documentation and both past and contemporary struggles for justice in South Africa.

The SAHA Board of Trustees remains grateful for Wits University's generous support of the organisation which has enabled SAHA's growth since 1994. This is by no means the end of the relationship with Wits - SAHA will continue to partner with a range of university departments on various research, outreach and educational programmes.

SAHA will be moving out of the William Cullen Library over the month of August so that we will be officially open for business at Constitution Hill by the beginning of September 2012. We have tried to plan our relocation in such a way as to minimise disruption but as we cannot guarantee that all will go smoothly, we apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
