On Monday, September 22, Africare and the Wot-if? Trust hosted a Social Good Summit Meetup in the South African township of Diepsloot in northern Johannesburg. Mainstream media tends to focus on crime and poverty in Diepsloot, but a vibrant youth community is working to improve the circumstances in the township and is eager to share the positive stories that characterize their home.
The event included breakaway group sessions and panel discussions with representatives from local businesses, civil-society organizations and government offices sharing their expertise. Check out some of the distinguished panelists’ contributions below:
