Eight Star for Life schools from Ubombo and Mkuze took part in this year’s Youth Dialogue and Empowerment workshop at Ghost Mountain inn, Mkuze. The aim of the dialogue is to challenge learners to discuss issues affecting them as youth in school and community, and come up with possible solutions to help alleviate those problems. Through this method, leadership and problem solving skills are built at a very young age. Learners are empowered to take responsibility for their own lives by finding solutions to issues affecting their future. Topics tackled on the day were: safety in schools, drugs, albinism, teenage pregnancy and sports and recreation.
Stakeholders present on the day were South African Police Service, Department of Health, Lifeline, Circuit manager and tribal council.
