“Our youth are dynamic and willing, but the problems are too big. We need help to get things going, and then I am sure we can create a wonderful future for all of us!”
Skhumbuzo gives first-hand testimony of life in the challenging circumstances of rural Mgungundlovu district in Kaw Zulu Natal, in post-Apartheid South Africa … with 80% unemployment, high crime, sexual violence, 60 students per class, little connectivity with urban affluent schools, few perspectives, aggravated by climate change, but with amazing positivity, diversity and human goodness – a great example to all of us.
Skhumbuzo is deeply moved by the example of teen hero*ines and wishes to to see youth leadership in his country.
His experience with traditional dance groups and youth exchanges in Germany is a perfect basis to work together, to create a Youth Leadership centre, spark action, set up school partnerships, facilitate tourist and volunteer visits and more.
