“Enhancing Nelson Mandela’s Legacy through Youth”
The augmentation of Mr. Nelson Mandela’s Legacy at the Nelson Mandela Museum has seen the centre becoming a hub for knowledge, inspiration, and hope among youth and public. The Nelson Mandela Museum will be hosting a Winter School Camp from 24 to 29June 2013 at its programming site, the Nelson Mandela Youth and Heritage Centre in Qunu.
The 2013 winter School camp will see seventy learners from seven district Municipalities of the Eastern Cape converging at Nelson Mandela’s Home Village, where his parents, children and other relatives lie buried. Since its inception in 2007, the Nelson Mandela Youth and Heritage Centre, has hosted more than 2000 learners through youth camps, National &International.
“The motive behind the establishment of the Winter School Camp programme is a result of an ideology shared by Nelson Mandela Museum patron Mr. Nelson Mandela; ‘that Nelson Mandela Youth and Heritage Centre should become a place where youth is nurtured to embrace and defend freedom we enjoy’ and that will only be achieved through educational programs of this nature, that embrace Nelson Mandela’s values, such as Integrity, Democracy Human Rights etc. The month of June has a historical significance in the role played by the youth. As an institution, we have a mandate to inform, educate and to capacitate the current generation for the betterment of their lives. “Youth Camps offered by the museum prepare these learners to adapt in peer pressure endured at school and in society”, said Noel Solani, head of programming at Nelson Mandela Museum.
The Nelson Mandela Museum through its programming has yielded to its mandate of mentoring learners to progress academically.
“As an institution we monitor the progress of every learner participating in our activities. We have seen a number of our participants fulfilling their academic ambitions and a testimony to that are the pioneers of this program, such as Lwazikazi Madikiza, who is doing her post graduate studies with Rhodes University. These pioneers have been moulded through a joint relation with schools”, said Ms. Pumeza Mandela, Education Manager, Nelson Mandela Museum.
