                                                   Anne Templeton

    (Maxine) Anne Templeton (nee Kipps) graduated BSocSc in 1965, and MSocSc in 1966.

    Annie Templeton and her husband Peter were the prime founders of the Catholic Welfare Bureau (CWB) in
    1970. In the course of time, as self-reliance emerged as a goal, it became Catholic Welfare and Development
    (CWD) and continues today under that title. Owen, Cardinal McCann had invited the Templetons to lead it,
    to respond to the plight of the poor and hungry, the dispossessed and the discarded, the victims of violence, the
    downtrodden, of all communities in the greater Western Province, to begin with the resources of the Catholic
    community, but to serve people of every faith, and of every colour and culture, on the single criterion of need.

    Who was served, and what special needs drew its focus over the years?

    Some CWD annual reports of the 1980s note the following: soup kitchens in formal and informal settlements
    suffering from poverty, food parcels for African old-age pensioners during apartheid’s heyday, knitting and
    weaving projects for the unemployed leading to forms of self-employment. One finds evidence of pre-schools
    and early learning centres in poor communities, old-age homes for social pensioners but with the dignity of self-
    governance and shared affordable costs, credit unions to avoid the pitfalls of debt and hire-purchase, farming in
    the city – producing vegetables on self-help plots in urban environments - low-cost self-built housing methods,
    community workers and social workers.

    The year 1990-91 reports expansions of those previous activities, but includes housing for AIDS victims and
    education for AIDS prevention (years ahead of the AIDS issue’s later prominence), counselling services,
    nutrition projects, help for abused women, and community centres, land and housing issues, rural development,
    office-skills training, mentoring, bursaries for disadvantaged students. By the mid-1990’s we see refugee
    centres, caring networks, containers for Africa – bringing adapted containers as first sites for crèches, kitchens
    and community centres - and later Jobstart and Worklink to address employment needs.

    Annie and her husband retired from CWD in early 1997.

    This 1997 departure was no ordinary retirement. Having left CWD in its fully operational mode, they took on
    the farm Goedgedacht in the Malmesbury area with wider social objectives. This farm project has become a
    centre for rural development in the Malmesbury area, a crèche, a place of quiet and respite, a site of debate.

    The consuming dream of Goedgedacht is a self-sustaining farm with three types of service: a venue that
    enables open and creative tackling of the contentious issues of community, justice and politics; a site of rural
    development; and a place at which persons of different faiths may encounter one another and discover the
    contrasting deepest values that imbue their common pilgrimage through the human condition. An olive grove
    has been established at Goedgedacht. The trees endure and once mature provide olive crops that can fund good
    wages, bad times and good works.

    In short Annie Templeton has embraced and epitomised a transcendent social responsibility that is an example
    to us all. She is an alumna who has made a contribution to the common good.

                       SOCIAL RESPONSIVENESS AWARD
             The Social Responsiveness Award provides an institutional signal to members of the
                  University that social responsiveness is an important institutional priority.

Dr Röther’s work on the consequences of the use of street pesticides for pest control in South Africa’s
peri-urban areas on children’s health and health policy is not only pioneering a new area in the field of public
health but is also influencing state and international policy. Through her research on household pesticide use she
has not only brought to light the illegal use of agricultural pesticides (not intended for household consumption)
to tackle poverty-related pest infestations, but she has also used her data to engage with key government
and non governmental institutions about possible solutions to the use of illegal and highly toxic pesticides
among the urban poor in Cape Town. In designing the research agenda she has developed innovative research
methods. During all stages of the project she has fostered a participatory research approach. A community NGO
co-initiated the project and participated in the research design. A Child Pesticide Policy reference group with
representatives of the community, child health practitioners, from the three tiers of government was established
prior to commencement and meets regularly to discuss findings, problems and intervention at every stage of the
research. This innovative approach is evidence of shared planning and decision-making practice.

This work has produced a wide range and different kinds of scholarly outputs and risk communication tools
to disseminate knowledge to a broad range of stakeholders – academics, government officials and community
members. Locally, a point chart and algorithm was developed for identifying poisoning by ‘street pesticides’
for clinicians in health facilities. Various risk communication tools developed by the project are now being
implemented in Cape Town’s peri-urban centres (e.g., stickers on the hazards of street pesticides) and are
under negotiation for national distribution through Pick n Pay stores (e.g., pamphlets providing pesticide-risk
information to consumers). A pamphlet in three languages to raise awareness of pesticide hazards was adopted
by local stakeholders for wider dissemination. Development of a wall chart on prevention of child pesticide
poisoning was inserted into a local newspaper. Nationally, production of a Guideline for Preventing Child
Pesticide Poisonings in SA has been distributed to all Environmental Health Professionals; a new notification
form to improve the national notification system for pesticide poisoning has been implemented by the National
Department of Health; and there have been presentations to a national conference organised by the Departments
of Health and Environmental Affairs and Tourism and to local conferences.

Dr Röther is drawing on her work to develop a new research-led curriculum for a post-graduate diploma and
MPhil in pesticide risk management. The students for this programme are predominately pesticide regulators
from South Africa and other parts of Africa and the programme’s focus is on equipping under-resourced officials
to reduce risks from pesticide use, particularly for vulnerable populations.

The project provides a learning experience for undergraduate, honours and master’s degree students in the
Health Sciences Faculty and in Anthropology. Students conducted community-based household surveys,
collected narratives from families/carers of poisoned children, conducted hospital record reviews, participated
in field observations, interviewed informal sellers of pesticides and worked alongside community fieldworkers.
The project has provided a base for students across disciplines to learn together, to present their findings to
policy stakeholders and to participate in practitioner training.

                                                  Navanethem Pillay
                                                 LLD (honoris causa)

    Among Judge Navi Pillay’s many achievements is having made profound jurisprudential change by her
    judgment in the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda establishing rape as a war crime. This came on top
    of a long and distinguished career.

    Navi Pillay graduated from the University of Natal with a BA in 1963 and a LLB in 1965. In 1982 she obtained
    a Master of Law and in 1988 a Doctor of Juridical Science from Harvard University. She was admitted as an
    attorney in 1967 and, during 28 years of practice, defended many anti-apartheid activists and trade unionists.
    Among her precedent-setting achievements were judgments exposing the use of torture in the apartheid state,
    the debilitating effects of solitary confinement and the winning of the right for Robben Island prisoners to have
    access to legal representation.

    In 1995 she was elected by the United Nations General Assembly as judge of the International Criminal
    Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), and in 1999 elected as its President. Under her leadership the ICTR set significant
    international criminal law precedent, including: the first conviction on the crime of genocide; the first ever
    conviction by an international court of a head of state on genocide and crimes against humanity; the conviction
    of elements of the media on incitement to genocide; and the groundbreaking redefinition of rape as an act of

    Judge Pillay was the only South African elected as one of the 18 judges of the newly-created International
    Criminal Court in 2003. Judge Pillay’s commitment to human rights and to women’s issues extends beyond her
    work on the bench and she holds leadership positions in a number of civic organisations. In 2008 she became
    the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, an office she regards as “the voice of the victim

                                                 LLD (honoris causa)

    Lynda Chalker is a public figure recognised for making major contributions to development and medicine in
    Africa. She was a British Conservative politician serving as Member of Parliament in the United Kingdom
    from 1974 to 1992, became a life peer as Baroness Chalker in 1992, and held ministerial and cabinet office in
    successive UK governments.

    As a Trustee of the University of Cape Town Trust in the United Kingdom she has been very supportive of the
    University of Cape Town over many years. She was responsible for ensuring that large sums of money were
    directed to the University of Cape Town for needy black students through the British Ambassador (later the High
    Commissioner) when she was Minister for Overseas Development at the Foreign Office from 1989 to 1997.

    She founded the Chalker Foundation for Africa which supports medical knowledge and training in Africa.
    She is chairman of the board of Medicines for Malaria Venture; the founder and chairman of Africa Matters
    Limited; and a founder board member of the Nelson Mandela Legacy Trust. Her support for development
    initiatives in Africa is widely recognised by African leaders who laud her as “Mama Africa”.

                            MISSION STATEMENT

UCT aspires to become a premier academic meeting point between South Africa, the rest of Africa and the world.
Taking advantage of expanding global networks and our distinct vantage point in Africa, we are committed, through innovative
research and scholarship, to grapple with the key issues of our natural and social worlds. We aim to produce graduates
whose qualifications are internationally recognised and locally applicable, underpinned by values of engaged citizenship and
social justice. UCT will promote diversity and transformation within our institution and beyond, including growing the next
generation of academics.

Foundation statement underpinning the mission statement

Our research-led identity is shaped by a commitment to:
•   academic freedom as the prerequisite to fostering intellectual debate and free injury;
•   ensuring that research informs all our activities including teaching, learning and service to the community;
•   advancing and disseminating knowledge that addresses the key challenges facing society – South African,
    continental and global;
•   protecting “curiosity driven” research;
•   nurturing and valuing creativity in the sciences and arts including the performing and creative arts;
•   stimulating international linkages of researchers and research groupings.

We strive to provide a superior quality educational experience for undergraduate
and postgraduate students through:
•   providing an intellectually and socially stimulating environment;
•   inspired and dedicated teaching and learning;
•   exposure to the excitement of creating new knowledge;
•   stimulating the love of life-long learning;
•   the cultivation of competencies for global citizenship;
•   supporting programmes that stimulate the social consciousness of students;
•   offering access to courses outside the conventional curricula;
•   attracting a culturally and internationally diverse community of scholars;
•   guaranteeing internationally competitive qualifications;
•   offering a rich array of social, cultural, sporting and leadership opportunities;
•   providing an enabling physical and operational environment.

In advancing UCT as an Afropolitan university, we will:
•    expand our expertise on Africa and offer it to the world;
•    extend our networks on the continent, along with our global connections and partnerships;
•    promote student and staff exchanges and collaborative research and postgraduate programmes;
•    engage critically with Africa’s intellectuals and world views in teaching and research;
•    contribute to strengthening higher education on our continent.

We strive to provide an environment for our diverse student and staff community that:
•   promotes a more equitable and non-racial society;
•   supports redress in regard to past injustices;
•   is affirming and inclusive of all staff and students and promotes diversity in demographics, skills and backgrounds;
•   offers individual development opportunities to all staff;
•   is welcoming as a meeting space for scholars from Africa and around the world.
