Developing our youth above and beyond the poverty line
South Africa is a developing nation fraught with staggering social, economic, and political challenges. Many challenges plaguing our nation have a direct, negative, and often debilitating effect/impact on our youth. According to research, a fifth of the global population is under the age of 25 and resides in sub-Saharan Africa. Sub-Saharan Africa is considered the youngest continent with its high youthful population. In an ideal world, the latter is an indispensable asset. In South Africa, however, the reality on the ground is contrary to this ideal. 8 Jul 2022 Read more

#UntoldStories: A story about Kgabo from Alex
A mere five kilometres away from Africa's richest square mile, lies one of Gauteng's most squalid townships: Alexandra. Unlike its wealthier counterpart, Sandton, Alexandra township is synonymous with abject poverty, a lack of proper water and sanitation as well as scant resources and opportunities. Like most, if not all, townships Alexandra is a microcosm that reflects the stark and harsh reality of a broader South Africa. Many black South African youths within our townships are forced to contend with hunger, violence, instability and unemployment on a daily basis; and an invasive sense of hopelessness. 9 May 2022 Read more
