In Zulu sinomlando means: "we have a history". The Sinomlando Project started at the School of Theology, University of Natal, in 1994 and used the oral testimonies of indigenous people to develop an all-inclusive history of African christianity. Gradually, the scope of the project has broadened, to include other areas, applying the methodology to those sectors of society that need to recover their ‘silenced memory’. Currently Sinomlando is involved in research and training in areas such as HIV/AIDS, gender and family history. The Memory Box Project, which is one of the main components of Sinomlando, is an attempt to address, through the methodology of oral history, the psycho-social needs of children affected by HIV/AIDS
