Empowering learners against crime Our learners have to feel safe at their schools as well as within their communities. The Safer South Africa Program capacitates the young people and learners in particular with information and skills that they need to stay safe and protect themselves and their families. This is a great empowerment initiative as our learners are the future leaders of tomorrow and thus need to grow and live without fear that is imposed by criminals.

This came into effect after this autonomous body (ZEMA) carried out an Environmental Impact Assessment (EPA) which revealed several issues which included the copper leach process whose affluence could have affected with the ecosystem.

http://news.distractify.com/culture/childrens-bedrooms-across-the-world/ Recently, I saw something posted on Facebook which was incredibly thought provoking. It wasn't some ornate tapestry, confounding riddle or joke I could not understand. Rather, it was a demonstration of the condition of the world through the medium of photography. I was appalled. The photos were not ugly or disgusting. Instead, I felt as if my place in the world was so detached from the places of others that...

I have seen people change and at the same time witnessed a retrograde in youths. I have been around areas where there is no hope for light and peace, but in this same situation some people still survive. I have been around youth, boys and girls, that have made life difficult for themselves due to lack of knowledge. And my countenance has dwindled, because I have witnessed a holocaust of ruined lives in the past, even now. I love peace and the prospect it brings. I love sanctuary - a foundation l...

Many a time, I have tried to deduce the consequences of some arrogant notions displayed by most youths. The world we live in is profoundly able to garnish our being to prosperity, and at the same make us subjects to harsh circumstances which will carve us into strong, unrelenting and determined youths if we work towards perfection.
