At the foot of Paarl Mountain, beneath the Afrikaans Language Monument, is a monument unique to the Western Cape. It is the Anglo Boer War ("ABW") Monument which focuses on the struggle of the Cape Afrikaners, and other Colonists who actively supported, or were sympathetic to, the Transvaal and Free State republics in the ABW (1899-1902). It is a place of quiet contemplation where the harm and suffering which our forebears had to withstand during the ABW may be remembered: about the principles of Freedom and Justice, and those who fought for it.
Vision – We strive towards the preservation of the Anglo Boer War Monument for future generations as a sought after attraction and to let its proud history live for ever, with piety to those who sacrificed their lives for freedom and justice.
Mission – To ensure that the ethos of the Anglo Boer War Monument in co-operation with everyone with a love for our country’s historical heritage remains preserved and is transferred to generations to come in order to give effect to our Vision.
