Doron Isaacs

Co-founder and organiser, Equal Education

Doron Isaacs has been a busy man. This 28-year-old holds both a business science degree and an LLB from the University of Cape Town and spent much of his time at varsity as an activist and working in student and civil society organisations. He has been general secretary of the Jewish youth movement, Habonim; an organiser at the Treatment Action Campaign; and co-founder of Students for Law and Social Justice � one of the largest student organisations in the country. Last year, Isaacs was one of the people who planned a delegation of South African human rights leaders � such as Barbara Hogan and Nozizwe Madlala Routlegde � to Israel and the occupied Palestinian Territories, to draw attention to the work of Israeli and Palestinian activists. Equal Education, Isaac's current project, is a Khayelitsha-based social movement that aims to better South African education, through research, media, law and grassroots activism. � Ilham Rawoot
