Palesa Matuludi (Limpopo Programme Manager), Yolandé Rautenbach and Dineo Matsheka (Limpopo Programme Manager).
During the weekend of 4 to 6 August, Ms Yolandé Rautenbach, Merensky’s President’s Award organiser attended the annual PA Indaba at the prestigious Hilton College in Pietermaritzburg.
Expectations, values, sustainability and challenges of this programme were discussed. Brainstorming sessions with other organisers from across South Africa proved once again how this programme contributes to the development of the youth. Teambuilding sessions ensured a fun weekend.
The Indaba was presented by the programme managers of the President’s Award from various provinces. The delegates also had to complete a 6 km hike in the college’s nature reserve where zebras, giraffes and wildebeest were spotted.
At the end of the weekend each Award Leader received a certificate to acknowledge the work they put in to empower the youth.
