Youth Day 2016 Part 1

In South Africa, the month of June is celebrated as Youth Month, to remember the youth who lost their lives during the Soweto uprising on 16th June 1976. This year, today 16th June 2016, marks the 40th anniversary of this occasion, which is commemorated under the theme “Youth Moving South Africa Forward”. Our youth require many components to move our nation forward, but arguably one element stands out above the rest and that is education. In recognition of the positive effects of education, Womanity has compiled a special programme that features extracts from previous guests who have demonstrated the impact that education has had on their lives and how South Africa has advanced as a result of it.
