Visit the Apartheid Museum

In order to know the future, you must understand the past. Located in Johannesburg’s South, the Apartheid Museum will¬†challenge and motivate you.

Watch Sarafina

The iconic theatre production will be showing at the Joburg Theatre, from June 14 to June 24. The play depicts students involved in the Soweto Uprising which took place in 1976.

Whatever you do on Youth Day, remember to take time to think about how far South Africa has come, and how we can move forward to create a better future for all who call Mzansi home.
