This new year, as children return to school, we are reminded of our responsibility to create happier and healthier young South Africans.
That’s why we’re launching a series of educational cartoons for South African youth, where we’ll tackle serious issues and present them in a way that’s easy for young people to understand.
We will be discussing many of the topics we dedicate our social media platforms to in 2021. These topics are close to our hearts and we believe they are key to creating a better life for South Africans. We will intensify our efforts to make a difference, create conversation and offer more support around these issues, instead of forgetting them and leaving them by the wayside in 2022.
These topics include financial capacity, as first explored in our October 2021 report. #FinanceFitSA contents; #MentalHealthAwarenessan important and often overlooked area of Health that we pledge to support; leading to, and most important of all, the continued fight against gender-based violence in all its forms.
While we rightfully dedicate November 2021 to the #HearYourVoice campaign in solidarity with our annual #16DaysOfActivism against GBV (Gender Violence), this year we intend to take this cause beyond a single annual publication.
You can expect to see cartoons centered around these three themes, which we believe have an impact on the lives of all young South Africans. We will be posting cartoons about aspects of financial fitness how to save, budget and earn money; focused on various aspects of mental health that may be relevant for young people, especially due to the publication of Matric results; and others focused on highlighting issues related to gender violence in a way that is accessible to children and young adults.
Can we create a better tomorrow by working to empower young people to be healthier, happier and more successful?
