Connecting legacies, sharing our histories and learning from the past: Nelson Mandela Museum takes South African Learners to Germany for a youth camp

April 04, 2014

Five learners from different Provinces will be leaving for lower Saxony, Germany to participate in an International Youth Camp that will  be held from 06  to 18 April 2014 at Anne Frank House Museum located at Berg-Belsem, a former World War 11 concentration site that is used today as a centre for teaching human rights and civic responsibilities. 

The five learners from the Northen Cape, Kwazulu Natal, Limpopo, North West, Western Cape and Eastern Cape Provinces will represent South Africa Internationally ironically for the first time without the blessings of a great advocate of Human Rights Nelson Mandela. The willpower of these young South African Ambassadors will be driven by the power of the road paved by Madiba in the fight for, and achievement of the historical milestone, the liberation of the people of South African from the clutches of  apartheid, and will celebrate the 20 years Of Freedom sharing experiences of the past with other young participants from other countries, and together reaffirm their commitment in promoting the spirit of unity, and multiplying their efforts in advocating human rights for a better future, the South African Dream, a dream cherished by all those who fought for freedom.

The youth camp is a partnership programme between Nelson Mandela Museum, the Eastern Cape Government and the Government of Lower Saxony, Germany. The Nelson Mandela Museum and Lower Saxony exchange young people on an annual basis, in what both countries call ‘international youth camps’, where human rights become the most essential part for all learning activities. This cultural exchange programme which will be running for the 7th time this year helps young people on both countries to understand each other’s history and cultures, and become human right advocates in their respective countries.

Four learners are selected every year, with 1 learner from each province. The International youth camp participants are selected by their peers during a national based youth camp that is hosted by the museum at its Youth and Heritage site in Qunu.

Learners to present South Africa are Goodness Nyembe of Manor High School Kwazulu Natal, Kaya Ntikinca of Clarkebury SSS Eastern Cape, Muhammed Ameen Adams of Rhylands High School Western Cape, Vusani Rector Nesengani of Tshwane University of Technology Nelson Mandela Museum Pioneer representing Limpopo, Mpho Marcia Leshomo of Boithaopo Secondary School North West Province. The above mentioned learners will not only act as Nelson Mandela Museum ambassadors but will represent South Africa.
