Animal Law Reform South Africa (“ALRSA”) is a non-profit company and registered NPO. We were informally established in 2014 by a group of lawyers interested in animal protection. In 2017, Animal Law Reform South Africa was formally registered by lawyers from academia, practice and civil society. Attorney Amy P. Wilson and Professors David Bilchitz and Bonita Meyersfeld, are co-founders and directors of the board of ALRSA. They have a broad range of expertise and many years of experience in both human and animal legal issues.
Utilising the law as our tool, we work on intersectional issues to ensure justice for all that require it. Through our main pillars, as well as through collaboration, we believe we can achieve incremental change for vulnerable beings and ensure that their interests are accounted for in the legal system.
We intend to operate as an organisation that can be approached by all relevant stakeholders ranging from animal rights, welfare and protection organisations to the government. We are willing to engage with those involved in the utilisation of animals to better their conditions and protection, while holding industry accountable. We therefore take a collaborative and not isolative approach and will work together, provided it falls within our mission and goals.

Cantare Children’s Choir is a talented choir from the greater Alberton area on Gauteng’s East Rand.
The choir was founded in 1995 by Ida Strydom in conjunction with the former Southern Transvaal Education Department. The Cantare choir has excelled as one of the best children’s choirs in South Africa and has given joy to thousands of listeners globally and served as a means of expression to hundreds of choristers across the spectrum of young South Africans. It has been a way of uniting the youth of the Southern Gauteng Region and Greater Ekurhuleni MM across cultural barriers, racial stereotypes and social divides.
The choir was privatised and funded itself through concerts, fundraising and membership fees. The choir organisation enriched the lives of many children who all set out to do what the Italian word Cantare means: To sing!
The Cantare Board carries the responsibility for administration, finances, fundraising, marketing, tours and concerts in conjunction with the artistic director.
Currently 70 choristers are part of our organisation. 75% of these choristers come from previous disadvantaged areas and participate in our development programme.
