Cape Town singer, Craig Lucas is back in the loft once again to chat about his role as The Justice Desk Global Goodwill Ambassador and the phenomenal work they are doing for those in need.
After encountering The Justice Desk (JD), Craig was taken by the non profit’s emphasis on championing human rights instead of just doing charity work.
“I get a lot of requests to do charity work but it wasn’t until I took part in JD and physically saw the huge impact they made, that I felt like I could really make some sort of difference as a part of the organisation.”
The Justice Desk is an award-winning human rights non-profit organisation based in South Africa, however, they work across Zimbabwe and Zambia. Their mission is to both educate and empower local communities about their rights and the importance of protecting those rights - with a key focus for them being Gender-Based Violence, Children’s Rights, Human Rights Educations, and Trafficking in Persons.
Outside of The Justice Desk, Craig helps his mother in her soup kitchen. In addition to his social impact work, Craig has been busy in the studio completing 3 new demos.
“Lockdown has been really tough but also very enlightening. It forced me out of my comfort zone.” Craig is looking to release another album next year.
The Justice Desk is hosting a “Win A Date With Craig Lucas” competition, where a lucky contestant gets a chance to go on a date with the singer and enjoy some amazing prizes. The process will be going towards their The Mbokodo Club project which works with female survivors of gender-based violence in Nyanga by providing them with self-defence classes, female empowerment sessions and mental health support.
The competition closes on 15 December so you still have time to enter. Just visit: https://www.justicedesk.org/event-details/win-a-date-with-craig-lucas
