Youth Development Programme

24 March 2020

On the 6th January, the Institute for Healing of Memories (IHOM) hosted a group of young people from the Church of Sweden. The purpose was to share and reflect on the work of the organisation. This activity also gave an opportunity for these young people to reflect and ask questions related to the current state of South Africa.

The issue of inequality and past injustices came strongly from this group. Some of the questions asked and comments are. The longer we are here, the more we see the complexity of the situation, no easy solution to make everyone get same opportunities; how does the school talk and teach about apartheid today?

Is there a big difference between schools in different areas? What do you think is the biggest difference between the people in townships and in rich areas? Why so many people do not like the solution, to give back what apartheid took away from the oppressed...?
