Perspective on Youth Development

South Africa has made efforts in creating an enabling environment for young people, by establishing policies, institutions and programmes that are aimed at developing the youth of South Africa.

The government promulgated the National Youth Commission Act, which resulted in the establishment of the National Youth Commission. The commission has a mandate to coordinate and develop an integrated youth policy.

Youth, what are you worth?

Youth, what are you worth,
wherever you find yourself
in the corner of your mind

Are you worth more
than your unemployed comrades
behind the security fence

Are boys worth more
than what girls are

Are you blue-eyed and blonde ones
worth more than the frizzy-haired
flat- and wide-nosed ones

Is a young rugby player (a "springbok")
worth more than a young swimmer
of the Olympic variety

Liberia’s Fake Orphanages Attract Donor Funds - NACROG

IRIN News, 21 May 2007. 

The Liberian child rights activists and the government have warned against orphanage owners who use “fake orphans” to attract millions of dollars in international assistance every year.

The country’s National Child Rights Observation Group (NACROG) says some orphanage owners establish ties with some philanthropic organisations abroad, seek and receive funding for children they take from their families, claiming that they are orphans whereas they are not.

Youth Development through the Resource Action Group (RAG)

In his article featured in the YDN’s Network Newsletter, David Kapp, details Nazeelah Kamaldien’s story of great achievement with the assistance from the Resource Action Group (RAG).

It’s amazing what some people get up to once they have empowered themselves. Some leave home to take over television stations, small islands and countries, while others simply Google themselves at work since they now know how to use the Internet.
