- Greetings Family and Friends Today marks the first day at home after two months of being on a journey I can't put into words. Last week this time we as the Volmoed Youth Leadership Training Programme and Desmond Tutu Center Youth Fellows Initiative Teams were all together at Robben Island Prison, a day that was so real. We heard the stories of our fallen beloved heroes and the ones that still alive fighting for justice in our 'Great Nation of South Africa'! Yesterday marked the end of the journey as a Team of our Training Programme at Volmoed, but the real work started after we received our Certificate in the five themes: Community Creation and Creativity Wholeness and Healing Peace and Justice Reconciliation A message to every young person who's a change maker, I leave you with two quotes: "We don't have the resources to help every child, but we do have the responsibility to give each child the tools to HELP THEMSELVES." ~ Nelson Mandela "Make this country beautiful, especially for the poor." ~ Desmond Tutu My last message to the 'Voeltjies': We received the knowledge that changed our life's for ever, now we have to fly, to dream and make every effort to that the first step to change our beloved communities. God bless everyone who played a role in our development as young leaders and give us this opportunity! #VYLTP #WeCanDoIt #YesWeCan #BeChangeMakers #Journey2016 United Nations United Nations Human Rights United Nations Youth United Nations Development Programme - UNDP National Youth Development Agency Nelson Mandela Foundation Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation The Desmond Tutu Center Future Leaders_Africa One Young World 46 minutes ago
