2015-07-29

Dineo Gaofhiwe-Ingram, Head: Office of International Affairs

In the final week of the summit, delegates visited the Qwaqwa Campus, where they engaged in cultural activities, and attended presentations by staff and students.  To celebrate Mandela Day, they participated in community work in Heidedal, Bloemfontein at the Reach Our Community Foundation (ROC), where they painted facilities at the children’s after-school care centre.

The summit came to a close on 17 July 2015, in a ceremony held on the Bloemfontein Campus. Student cohorts presented videos depicting their experiences over the two weeks they spent in the Free State. These videos capture what they view as similarities in the struggle for human existence, and compared and contrasted the realities of day–to-day life in their home countries and in South Africa.
