Vuselela Media NPC took part in the Peermont Excellence Workshop, held at The Ridge School, which included schools from across Gauteng. The workshop included seminars and discussions that raised important issues around the future of young people in South Africa. The theme of the workshop was “Born Free’s imagining the Future”.
Vuselela Media provided Bona Retsang community journalism training and worked with seven of the participating schools including Germiston High School, Lethulwazi Comprehensive, General Smuts High, Sunward Park High, Tembisa High, Thuso-Lesedi Secondary and Unity Secondary to develop video material for the workshop. The community journalism created by these schools focused on stories of young people who were future focused and what they were doing to prepare for the future.
On the day of the workshop, Vuselela Media acted as the press team covering the event and collected stories of young people and the positive projects they were involved in.
