Musina is a small town on the border of South Africa and Zimbabwe.like many small rural towns there is very little for young people to do.Save the Children established a childrens Advisory Council to gather young people together so that there voices could be heard by authorities in Musina.
Out of thise Council me and Polite Singo were chosen to represent South Africa on the Global Chidrens Panel,sinne returning from the panel in London me and Polite were very keen to progress some of their ideas.
In thise last couple of weeks,representatives from CAC based in Musina have gathered for three hours to workshorp how they could go about improving the lives of young people in Musina rather than waiting for orthers to help us.
