Participants will spend time in Cape Town and Johannesburg in South Africa and Manzini and rural areas in Swaziland. The programme will include visits to the anti-apartheid museum, Robben Island, a local workers plant, a visit to parliament, peer HIV/AIDS education projects and much more.
There will be an opportunity to meet with peers from these southern African countries and develop lasting and shared relationships. There will also be a chance to experience first hand, the energy and colour of southern Africa but also the poverty and difficulties facing the region. There may also be the opportunity to visit other southern African countries as well as meetings with delegates from Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi.
ACTSA have run two successful youth and student delegations to southern Africa in the last two years. Click here to read last year's report.
We want you to celebrate both Mandela the man and the movement which he led.
