Bathekgi Partners are organisations and companies that have joined forces with Bathekgi to promote the aims and objectives of the project, and bring unique and important resources to Bathekgi and its broader constituencies.

As part of our partnerships, we agree to sell and deliver our Partners’ products and/or services through Bathekgi Online, compensate partners’ for all products and/or services purchased, and profile our Partners in all our events and on our online platforms. We hope to use Bathekgi Online to reach producers who otherwise would not have a platform through which to sell their products or tender their services.

As part of our commitment to Bathekgi’s broader objectives of making cultural and other resources more affordable to our constituencies, we ask that all our partners strive to price their products affordably. Bathekgi’s approach to administration fees for use and maintenance of the online sales platform is also informed by the objective of assisting with the sustainability of our partners. The Terms and Conditions for the use of the platform can be found here.

Bathekgi welcomes a whole variety of partners. In particular, however, it is geared to promote small publishers, self-publishers, cooperatives, and other small businesses that in general do not have the resources or opportunities to profile their products online.

Organisations, institutions and companies can also become Bathekgi Partners by making a financial contribution or ‘contribution in kind’ to the Bathekgi Supporters Programme. Such contributions will also entitle Partner organisations to Bathekgi Subscriber benefits. To learn more about this, click here (

If you are interested in selling your products and/or services through Bathekgi Online, and would therefore like to become a Bathekgi Partner, please email the Bathekgi Team at

Khanya Publishing

Khanya Publishing, a project of Khanya College, is a response to the decline of progressive publishing initiatives that were central to the social justice struggle during apartheid. These publications and publishing houses, like Work in Progress, The New Nation, Ravan Press, Sached Publishing and many others in different parts of the country, were central in providing platforms for debate, critical analysis of contemporary economic, social and political issues. The role played by similar publications remains as important in post-apartheid South Africa as it was in the period of anti-apartheid struggles.

Khanya Publishing’s menu includes books, newsletters and booklets produced at Khanya College. Khanya College also publishes non-fiction and fiction titles written by the various constituencies that Khanya College works with, in particular new authors. Khanya Publishing also collaborates with self-publishers and with other small publishers. Khanya Publishing is involved in various initiatives to promote a progressive publishing movement in South Africa and on the continent, which includes setting up a printing house, and working with the Jozi Book Fair to provide spaces where publishers can showcase their work.

The Workers Museum and Cottages

The Workers Museum strives to keep the heritage of migrant workers of Southern Africa alive. Being based in a former compound for Johannesburg’s municipal migrant workers it represents a site of conscience for the rigorous control and extreme exploitation that millions of workers experienced during the predominance of the migrant labour system. The Workers Museum reflects the exceptional significance of the migrant experience on family and cultural life, on women and men of the region and, in co-operation with Khanya College, engages communities in memory projects to address migrant labour issues of the past and presence.
