Youth Development

In July 2013, we sent 39 students from Grade 8 to Grade10 to Hogsback for a non-academic, personal development Holiday Camp, with help from the MylifE organisation. The camp was aimed at helping the learners’ personal development, communication, teamwork skills, problem solving ability, & leadership development.

The campers had a whirlwind of a week, doing everything from hearing about their right to an equal education to learning how to live sustainably. They were challenged to work in teams & cook for themselves, to plant trees & compost, & to hike 20km in one day to see the cascading Madonna & Child Waterfall.

Zenande Kwinana, one of the learners who attended the camp, said: “I learned a lot about myself & focusing on my fears” while Sihle Mboru reported that “this camp has changed my life...I learned new things & there was nothing I could not do here because everything in life is

possible.” In 2014, we plan to hold 2 more youth camps together with regular sports, self-development & motivational activities.
