The youth of any nation is the future of that nation. If a society fails to realize this simple truth, we as a society will fail. Issues like these were discussed at the Millennium Development Goals Post 2105 summit that was held outside Cape Town and was organized by the NGO organization Ilitha Labantu. There were representatives from all over our South Africa and other parts of the world. They represented different NGO’s, the South African government (3 ministers) and even the United Nations. They discussed Youth Empowerment in South Africa. Critical issues about our youth and our country’s future were raised and discussed. Ilitha Labantu played their part to represent the women and youth of this country and the issues that affect them.
