Sailing around the world project

February 4th, 2018|

My name is Jan Eirik Breen. In the summer of 1981 I started building my sailboat, Leviata, at Riis Farm in Nordby of the Ås municipality, Norway. My dream certainly wasn’t to sail far, but to build a boat for my family.

I: Glimpses from South Africa today

The demanding road to a fairer distribution of South Africa’s resources.


South Africa is at the top of the world index that ranks the difference between rich and poor within a country. There are many historic reasons for this.

In 1913 came the law that gave the Europeans the right to 91% of the country’s area. In 1936 this law was adjusted so that the black population got the right to 13% of the area.

During the Apartheid time (1945-94) 10 Bantustans or «Homelands» where established in South Africa. Some also called them «black spots». See the map below, taken from Tore Linne Eriksen’s newly published, and good, book about South Africa’s history.

Several of these 10 Bantustans were not geographically connected. In IMPANDE we work in Transkei, the largest of the Bantustans.

Hannes Shelter



The Løvlie family have built Hanne’s Shelter – a centre for women exposed to violence in the Ugu District in Natal in South Africa. The centre has been built in memory of their daughter Hanne, who was killed outside the government building in Oslo. It is a realization of Hanne’s engagement for this group of women and this area. The centre was opened in April this year and you can see a picture below.
