Africa Regional Exchange Programme Announcement

Welcome to Sawa Sawa!
AFS Interculture SA is proud and delighted to announce our first Intra-Africa programme aimed at building an African identity and integration amongst young people within Africa. The programme focusses on leadership capacity building and change making with a cultural and touristic element, sharing insight about cultures and traditions.

The programme is designed to build future leaders within their communities who share an African identity, with the aim to develop positive and lasting relations and social cohesion between citizens of the African continent.

Conflict and social exclusion is rife in Africa and with this programme we hope to take a step towards increased social cohesion amongst citizens and building bridges across the North Africa Sub-Saharan Africa divide.
