Khaya Lam (My Home) Land Reform Project
Khaya Lam is an initiative that seeks to reverse the evils of the apartheid system. During apartheid, blacks were prevented from owning property and accessing the financial benefits that full title brought to the white community. For such a system to prevail today across most of South Africa is an anachronism of the past. For this reason, the FMF, together with local authority partners and sponsors, is working towards creating a blueprint which can be extended across the whole country to get rid of an apartheid legacy and create property owning communities who can decide for themselves how, when, and why to sell, transfer or hold onto their own property.

The FMF is an independent, non-profit, public benefit organisation, created in 1975 by pro-free market business and civil society national bodies to work for a non-racial, free and prosperous South Africa. As a policy organisation it promotes sound economic policies and the principles of good law. As a think tank it seeks and puts forward solutions to some of the country’s most pressing problems: unemployment, poverty, growth, education, health care, electricity supply, and more. The FMF was instrumental in the post-apartheid negotiations and directly influenced the Constitutional Commission to include the property rights clause: a critical cornerstone of economic freedom.
The FMF has a wealth of information in papers, articles and opinion pieces available on the website which can influence the public debate and present alternative policies to the people of South Africa. Please look at our website www.freemarketfoundation.com. Also see Facebook and Twitter.
