This September, the Nal’ibali reading-for-enjoyment campaign is launching a nationwide storytelling competition to find South Africa’s first ‘Story Bosso’. Aimed at reawakening a love of storytelling among South Africans of all ages, the competition will connect the public to ideas and inspiration both on how to tell stories and read aloud to others; showcase a range of local stories (in all South African languages) as well as identify undiscovered storytellers in communities across the country.
The 5th annual Cancervive Awareness Ride takes to the road from the 10th to 20th of September to get South African communities talking about cancer. An entourage of more than 65 cancer survivors, supporters, media and emergency services will embark on the 2 300km route, stopping over in towns to educate residents on how to detect cancer at an early stage, and how to gain access to appropriate treatment.
Education is undoubtedly the best way to bring lasting change in South Africa and most of us desire to be part of this change. You might have the skills, money or goods to contribute - it is just about knowing where and how to get involved.
The Raise Your Hand site makes it easy to find a charity tailored to what you are able to give - so just Raise Your Hand and become a part of the change!
