ACTIVISM OR DEATH FOR BLACK YOUTH IN DEMOCRATIC SOUTH AFRICA.

Telling the truth and making someone cry is better than telling a lie and making someone smile - Paolo Coelho

The Key Is Unity

/
"All our problems are going to be solved if we work together and equally put an effort to build the kind of a country we envisage as young people."

We are African Before We are South African

/
Africa is not just a geographical expression, Africa is not just a people, and Africa is not just a state of mind, although it is all those things; Africa is home, and home is where the spirit is Dr Charles Finch

Who is Network Connect?

/
Network Connect was set up in 2015 to keep in touch with Activators in this expanding network and to share what they are dong with other Activators and the SA public. These are some of the strategies that we employ to keep the network connected.

Iimbizo (Imibizos) Dialogues

/
Activators are hosting imbizos (public dialogues) with partners and Activator facilitators in rural and urban areas across all provinces and wherever possible, sharing the conversation across South Africa via the media, radio and social media.

Local Stations

/
Activators are organising spaces to come together regularly to meet, engage, network, share knowledge, skills, ideas and resources, and forward their individual and collective causes.

A! Help Desk

/
The Activator Help Desk fields Network enquiries to relevant members of the Network Connect team. This desk will help you to know how we can partner with you and work more closely.

You-th Making Local Government work

/
Navigating and engaging with the socio-political environment is an ongoing intention of the ACTIVATE! programme and we continue to promote the work of the many inspiring Activators who vigorously engage with local government.

Lessons from the 1976 Soweto Uprisings

/
The 1976 Soweto Uprisings serve as a great example of the critical role young people have historically played in challenging the harsh and unjust conditions facing them and bringing about a democratic dispensation in South Africa.

The Future is Inevitable

/
In a country where the majority of the population are below the age of 35, one cant help but wonder what are we doing with this potential? Youthfulness should be associated with energy and creativity. The youth voice should be prominent in media and shaping narratives around what it means to live in a free and democratic South Africa.

Campaigns

/
The network is so vibrant and alive with possibilities that we have dedicated resources to keep (you) in touch with whats hot in the network. These are some of the current campaigns and events.
