> Seolo SA Serote



“Ha kokoana morena hoa tsenoa hoa tsuoa hoa tsenoa hoa tsuoa ha kokoana”
Sustainability of sustainability.


‘Seolo’ is a Sesotho word meaning Anthill or Termite hill. Ants and termites depict a very formidable organisation whose ultimate objective is to sustain their existence. Working in an organised formation, ants and termites move in and out of the ground, ultimately forming a home that towers above the ground as an isolated hill. This achievement is owed to a fostered unity that brings thousands of ants and termites together to work loyally to build this home and constantly feed their Queen Mother, who is continuously charged with the responsibility to create and keep on creating the offspirngs of this resilient kingdom.

Seolo therefore teaches us about sustainability, which comes about through unity of purpose and resilience to the course.
Seolo sa Serote Institute is being created as an Institute that is inspired by the desire to sustain life, through interventions that require the discipline of unity and the resilience to succeed against all odds.

IKS and AR
IKS is: emanating from the resilience of the human spirit, and interacting with
the environment, to generate knowledge, to organise and accumulate it, so as
to generate it further to contribute to quality of life and a liveable world.
AR: IS the regeneration, reclamation, recreation, reawakening and rebirth of
AFRICA by AFRICANS, together with other peoples of the world; it is the
furtherance of PAN AFRICANISM within the global context.
