Welcome To The Moral Regeneration Movement
What began back in 2006 as the Moral Charter envisioned values that would enable the country to achieve moral renewal. The Moral Regeneration Movement (MRM) is a networking platform that facilitates and coordinates all processes and initiatives aimed at combating moral degeneration. As a civil society-driven initiative that is supported by the government, the MRM provides the opportunity to redouble our efforts as a full partnership of the people and pay special attention to the issues of development, social cohesion and nation building. The MRM also supports traditional and cultural programmes.
In his inaugural address as first president of a democratic South Africa, Madiba said: “Out of the experience of an extraordinary human disaster that lasted too long, must be born a society of which all humanity will be proud. Our daily deeds as ordinary South Africans must produce an actual South African reality that will reinforce humanity’s belief in justice, strengthen its confidence in the nobility of the human soul, and sustain all our hopes for a glorious life for all.”
We were all invited to contribute to the realisation of his vision.

Our Focus Areas
We are committed to eradicating social ills and building communities grounded on positive values. Together, we can achieve a caring society in pursuit of lasting peace and prosperity.
Development of Ethical Leadership
The MRM aims at developing and nurturing leadership at all levels of society. Leaders are perceived as role models and should, therefore, be persons of integrity who themselves continually aspire to set the standard for ‘morality.’
The youth are often perceived as the agents of immoral behaviour or helpless victims who need external intervention. They themselves decry the lack of role models and opportunities. The MRM will harness and support the energy and creative spirit of youth towards moral renewal!
Sadly, in our current situation, those corrupt individuals who are skilled will often misdirect government funds, thus preventing the delivery of social services to the needy. The MRM aims at making our education system highlight moral formation as one of its core functions, both in theory and in practice.
The family, in all its cultural and religious manifestations, is an important agent of socialisation and a major instrument for nurturing values, attitudes and behaviour. It is a goal of the MRM to strengthen the family unit.
Crime and Corruption
Crime and high levels of corruption manifests a deep loss of respect for human life, a profound lack of patriotism and care for others, and a sickening degree of greed and selfishness. The MRM aims at combating the root causes of crime and corruption in all their manifestations!
Given the diversity of religious belief systems in our communities and the propensity of formal religion to proselytise, the power of religion as an agent of moral renewal is weakened. Moral Regeneration aims at fostering greater religious tolerance and cooperation for moral renewal.
Media economics dictate that good news does not sell, whilst negative news does. This focus on sensationalising negative news stories fuels the perception that the country is generally immoral. The MRM will ensure that the media also promotes positive stories of moral courage and renewal!
