SHABAKA – MEN OF AFRIKA invites young Afrikan Men to a LIFETIME EXPERIENCE!
We warmly welcome young teenage Black Men to YOUNG AFRIKAN MEN’s CAMP – a five days outing with a holistic focus on self-development, taking responsibility and being a change maker for our continent.
DATE: 6-10 December 2019
AGE GROUP: 13-20 years
VENUE: DERUXA, Moloto (GP/MP)
COST: R2,000 (all included: transport from Jhb/Midrand/Tshwane, meals, accommodation, program material etc)
(We are raising funds for stipends to participants who may need financial assistance.)
This is not a holiday! Each day will have a packed, inter-active program with challenging, interesting, engaging and fun activities, including: Black Consciousness, Pan-Afrikan knowledge, Leadership, Identity, Family, Arts, Sports, Culture, Music and more.
The goal of the camp is to inspire young Afrikan men to be proud, strong, involved and ambitious. We want them to be equally successful in their innovative careers as in their knowledge of Afrika and aspirations for familyhood. We live in a time where we have many concerns for our Black men, and we think it is important to engage them while they are still growing into manhood.
The camp will take place at DERUXA, a Black-owned conference and accommodation venue in Moloto, KwaMhlanga (50 km north-east of Tshwane). The place has a conference centre, big lapa, bungalows, fireplaces, stone tables and great outdoor space.
Transport will be set up from central locations in Johannesburg, Midrand and Tshwane; this is included in the price.
MANAGEMENT AND SAFETY:
The camp’s program will be facilitated by a team of highly experienced and professional educators, youth workers and community builders. Precautions will be taken to provide a stimulating, safe and empowering environment for all participants.
An information meeting for parents/families will be held in Johannesburg prior to the camp. More details to follow.
