Eight Grade 7s from Isiphiwo Primary School have been part of an Active Citizenship journey introduced to the school by Simphiwe Mahlanyana who is a member of the South African Youth Leaders Network.

The Active Citizenship workshops were run at Isiphiwo between April and June 2016 through CEO and Founder Thabo Skotoyi.

The learners have been empowered with tools to embrace, appreciate, accept and live with diversity.

This past Saturday - 25th June 2016 – they graduated from the process after having attended all the workshops.

The Certificate ceremony was held at Mimi’s Soup Kitchen in Harare, Khayelitsha, that feeds disadvantaged young children on alternative weekends.

There were parents, peers and guests who blessed the event with their presence.

A couple of speakers made the event worthwhile, including Buhle Sithela, the founder of the Khayelitsha Bin Project, who spoke about his business and how he identified the need in his community to establish his concern, and an excited Margie Blake who drew a picture of the effects of education in a youngster’s life, irrespective of their background and socio-economic status.

The event was sponsored by Espinaca Innovations, a Khayelitsha based spinach bakery led by Lufefe Nomjana, who offered some delicious spinach products.

The youth will now be part of an ongoing follow-up process to check their progress as well as their interpretation of active citizenship as they continue to live from day to day in their life.
