THE annual AfrICAN Children of the Year Awards is the most important initiative of the Stacey Fru Foundation.

During the awards ceremony, the Stacey Fru Foundation and its partners recognise children aged between seven to 13 who come from across Africa who are contributing positively to their community, country and the continent in a bid to glorify African gifts and promote Africa to Africans as a continent of choice.

The first ceremony was held in November 2018 just months after the awards custodian, then 11-year-old Stacey Fru, dedicated a portion of her life to promote and celebrate children from Cape Town to Cairo.

The awards have been well-received by parents, the public and partners.

Deante Swart (13) from Greytown was nominated for community development and upliftment.

Deante won the category, coming first out of all nominees from across Africa.

Deante is a proud pupil of Wembley College. She believes that each and every child must be involved in community work from a young age and that we all can make a difference in our community and in the country.

Deante lives by the motto: “Be the change.”
