About SANCO Greater Tshwane

We, the South African National Civic Organization (SANCO), pledge our commitment to a unified, democratic, non-sexist, non-racist, non-exploitative South Africa based on the freedoms, rights and values enshrined in the Bill of Rights of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.

SANCO as a civic movement, is constituted by the residents of South Africa and is founded on the basic needs, aspirations and expectations of the masses of the people.

The guiding motto is: “People-centered and People-driven”.

We believe that the commitment referred to above and the attainment of our aims and objectives can only be achieved in a united country with strong governance, an effective civic movement and a vibrant civic society.

SANCO promotes nation building, truth and reconciliation, socio-economic development, political development, transformation, and peace and prosperity.
