YES4YOUTH ‘A Future that Works’

Posted on

Since the launch of the Yes4Youth campaign UniMedia has invited young bloggers to write and share their thoughts on this initiative by government and the private sector. The piece below is written by  Alexandra Warren Blogger from Cape Town.

#YES4YOUTH

As an individual that forms part of the SA youth wave, I can easily say that we are struggling. I see it all around me … I see countless faces plagued with stress, I hear the cries of depression and constant aches of longing for something more to flow through our veins.

This reality is leaving us in a state of complete and utter disability as we are outranked by the competitive and stressful nature of our economy. Trying to succeed within this economy may hinder our spirits, drive and mental health.

It was a good idea to have @Tali_Babes (the character from Showmax’s “Tali’s Wedding Diary”) as the “virtual host” to introduce the evening. I say virtual because Tali was on a video recording, who welcomed guests before the welcome drinks.

South Africa ‘cancer is under–reported’

Posted on

In South Africa, cancer is under–reported due to the lack of a comprehensive cancer surveillance system and this is a huge reason for concern.

With 1 day to go for World Cancer Day, communities around the world will hold festivals, walks, seminars and public information campaigns to raise awareness and educate people on cancer ‘ WE CAN, I CAN’.

We look at what South Africa has publicly planned on this day to collate with the rest of the world.

In Johannesburg the ‘One Step at a Time Campaign’, an initiative of the Breast Health Foundation will be hosting a 5km walk at Zoo Lake. This walk is known as the One Step at a Time Cancer Warrior Walk and invites all cancer warriors, families and friends.

In Cape Town the HPCA and the Cancer Alliance are hosting a 5km and 10km walk at the Castle of Good Hope, a historical…
