DA empowers young people on Mandela day

Provincial Leader – Mpumalanga

Today, ten children from communities around Mbombela saw the Lowveld like they have never seen it before. In celebration of Mandela Day, the DA in partnership with Supatsela Edu-Tours took learners from disadvantaged backgrounds on their maiden flight over Mbombela.

The learners were accompanied by the DA’s members of Legislature along with Godfrey Nkadimeng, director of Supatsela Edu-Tours on a tour of the airport and their first flight over the lowveld.

They may have come from different areas but all the learners shared a common interest in aviation.

The DA is proud to have been part of an initiative aimed at educating Mbombela’s youth about the different career opportunities available to them and of exposing young people to the beauty of this region.

The DA will continue working tirelessly to create opportunities to empower young people because as Nelson Mandela once said, “History will judge us by the difference we make in the everyday lives of children”.
