“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” – Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom
Ten members of the “Sakhikamva Club” from Ngwenyathi High School in Newlands attended the in-school Bumb’Ingomso Leadership Camp at Manderson Hotel and Conference Centre in Sutterheim during the Easter holidays.
The Bumb’ingomso Leadership Network Camp, a five day interactive motivational programme, was attended by Club Office Bearers; Club Project Teams, Club Members and selected network members, with the aim of encouraging them to start clubs and run projects in their communities and schools. Its main objectives were to familiarise the BI Leaders with leadership and project planning elements and tools in order to effectively run their clubs independently. This in turn would capacitate their team members in running successful projects in their communities.
The Sakhikamva Club focuses on issues faced by the young women in their school and community. Namely, peer pressure, teenage pregnancy, drug abuse and gender based violence. After the camp, the young ladies introduced their school members to Bumb’ingomso and shared their experience at the camp. This created an even bigger demand for the program throughout the school.
