Site Management

Historically, initiation site management was not required— there were no official sites to manage, no facilities to maintain, and no government involvement. Initiations took place in the bush.  Now that initiation has been brought into an urban environment where space and resources that were traditionally used are limited, a management team is a valuable asset to the preservation of the site and to the provision of a safe environment for initiation.


The Langa site management consists of an initiation site committee, site manager, and associated government officials.  The Langa Initiation Site Committee is composed of 6-7 volunteer community members. Much of the success of the site is due to the high involvement of the site committee members in the community.
