As part of Africa Unite Exchange Programme which intends to bring more young people
from other African Countries to attend its Annual Human Rights Peer Educatorstraining
in Cape Town- South Africa, for the first time we have received a total of six (6) young people, two respectively from the following countries: Tanzania, Swaziland and Zimbabwe.
These young people came to join other youth from South Africa along with American students from the University of Connecticut
during this Training held from the 28th of February to the 2nd of March 2014 at Goedgedacht Farm. After the training, these young people are encouraged to go back and hold similar trainings in order to raise Human Rights awareness in their respective communities/countries.
The young interns from Tanzania and Zimbabwe stayed for a period of one month after the training and they had a chance to be involved in community work along with other Africa Unite youth peer educators in Cape Town.
It was a great learning opportunity for South African youth and their counterparts from other African Countries. Follow up activities and recommendations were made from both sides, however, this Exchange Programme has allowed us to start Africa Unite Clubs in local Schools in
Cape Town and also a Social Media
Forum for young people across Africa to share their views on the current Human Rights situations in their respective countries.
