They are visiting each township throughout the region to ensure nobody is left out.

The ANCYL in Gert Sibande is currently on a broader campaign to have pupils doing their final grade of school assisted to go to tertiary.

Most pupils don’t know how to apply for tertiary education admission and financial help.

So the ANCYL launched this campaign in order to assist them apply and go study at those higher learning institutions.

They will visit townships and ask pupils to bring along their Grade 11 or mid-term Matric results and help them fill out university or college forms right away.

The regional leadership said they believe in education as a primary tool to liberate disadvantaged communities.

Regional secretary Maqhawe Mlotshwa said that last week they were at Chief Jerry Secondary School in Nhlazatshe where they donated sanitary towels to 540 learners and preached a message against gender based violence.

“We have also embarked on a massive campaign of assisting the youth to apply at universities and Tvet colleges,” he said.

Nakile Makhubela, a PTT member for the ANCWL, wrote on her Facebook page that the visits to schools is also to teach the kids about reporting gender based violence wherever they see it happen.

“The principal of the school requested that we come back on a program aimed at gangsterism, there are gangs at the school that disturb teaching and learning,” she said.
