Creating a better Mzansi through sport and development

Ten Ethnic Groups Conquering Drakensberg

Fourteen friends (all speaking 10 different SA languages and from different Youthzones sites)  embarked on a hiking trip to the Injisuthi region of the Drakensberg. It was a successful trip and experience never to be forgotten. Many lessons were learnt from the hike of which all of them were related to the daily lives of these leaders in their respective communities. Typical examples of lessons learnt varied from teamwork, communication, never complain, appreciating etc. It was the first time the group hanged out together and it was like they have been together for ages. They also stayed together in Doctor's house for the night before they then visited each other 's communities as part of an ethnic exchange and sharing. The whole experience felt just like a big family being together. Other highlight was seeing Sanele  from Umlazi and Obakeng from Upington visiting Kameeldrift and Mamelodi and hang out with their friends; learning from each other. South Africa and the world can be a better place through such small things- interacting and spending time together.
