Change the world


Reasons to be Proud - #R2bP: Junior Student Life Officer in the residences, Xolela Madlanga, along with three students have been invited as mentors and facilitators to the Rotary Adventures into Citizenship programme in Cape Town in June this year.

The Adventures into Citizenship is a programme runs by the Rotary Clubs of Cape Town, Kirstenbosch and Wynberg aimed at grade 11 and 12 learners who have shown great leadership potential in their respective Interact Clubs and schools.

The programme promotes the avenues of citizenship that leaders may pursue after school. During the first week of winter school holidays, 50 learners from across the country are hosted in Cape Town to share in a week of fellowship and development.

Xolela (left), Lawrence Lwanga (a final year LLB student), Ayanda Kubayi (a BA Honours: Political Science student), and Simbongile Giqwa  (a 3rd year IT: Software Development student) - all pictured below, were selected by the planning committee for their leadership capabilities shown at the Communities Without Borders conference held in Stellenbosch last year. 

The group will tour Cape Town’s major establishments that are vital to the success of cities and towns – including Parliament, the High Court, and the Civic Centre where they will learn how laws are made and upheld, and how a town functions to deliver multiple services to a diverse and wide spread community.

Rotary is a global service organisation, and is the only NGO to hold a permanent seat on the UN Security Council.

Living our value of Ubuntu, this group will essentially be gifting their time to the next generation!

Lawrence, Ayanda and Sim
