Making Your Mark Project “Cape Town Be Heard” – June 2017

“Cape Town Be Heard” attends the Youth Parliament in the Western Cape

Penny Hlaluka IFWEA project assistant reports: “Youth experienced first-hand the processes and protocol of the provincial Parliament Assembly. Recommendations made by the 2017 Youth Parliament will influence the strategic decision making by provincial government that ultimately affect the lives of young people in the areas of: youth and economic empowerment, poverty alleviation, youth and social cohesion, youth and education – skills development and access to education. There was a good geographical representation of youth in high school, university students, young entrepreneurs but not many community activists.”
